Danilov on Karabakh, The Kuril Islands and Kaliningrad: opening new fronts against Russia would help us

Oleksiy Danilov, Secretary of the National Security and Defence Council, believes that the opening of additional war fronts in the sphere of Russia's interests would greatly help Ukraine to fight the Russian attack.

Quote: "After Nagorno-Karabakh declared martial law on its territory today, I can state that there is indeed active combat taking place. Bayraktar drones are no longer making the orcs' lives miserable only on our territory, but are also being put to work in Nagorno-Karabakh. Armenia is currently approaching Russia with a request for military assistance. However, they (Russia) had actually moved their forces away from there in order to send them towards our country last week. We observed these columns as they were moving. And we are to understand that the aid the Russian Federation promised Armenia and Nagorno-Karabakh is unlikely to appear. 


Additionally I would like to point out the fact that, today, after statements by Japan that four islands on the Kuril ridge belong to Japan, the Russian Federation began military exercises in the area, but the number of Russian forces currently defending that sector is rather limited, as currently the majority of those were sent here.

It is currently hard to tell how this situation will develop. However, if additional war fronts begin emerging for the Russian Federation, made possible due to its actions in the recent past, that would be very, very helpful for us." 

Details: Danailov also mentioned that in his opinion "Georgia is acting rather unethically, mildly speaking."

"The situation with Transnistria (the unrecognised Russian-backed breakaway region of Moldova), Georgia, and all others are becoming part of a day's affairs...

Additionally, Poland could still officially make claims on the Kaliningrad region. That would very much help us, as it would give them (the Russian army) something to do other than destroying our cities and villages, killing our women and children'' added the NSDC secretary.  


On 7 March Japan's Prime Minister Fumio Kishida reminded Russia that four southern islands in the Kuril archipelago are originally Japanese. Following this announcement, on 21 March Russia unilaterally announced ending the peace negotiations concerning the status of the Kuril archipelago with Japan. Soon after, Russia began military drills on the islands. 

On 25 March Azerbaijan began an incursion on Nagorno-Karabakh, which Jerevan states went beyond the agreed upon line. The stability of this region should be guaranteed by "peacekeepers" from the Russian Armed Forces, but they were not able to prevent an escalation. Armenia wishes to investigate the actions of the Russian "peacekeepers" and has also appealed to Russia to increase the number of troops in the region. 

On 26 March Waldemar Skrzypczak, Polish general and former commander of the Polish Land Forces, stated that the Kaliningrad region is currently under Russian occupation and that Poland may "make claims toward it."
