Zelensky Addresses Nation As Ukraine Officials Say “No Full-Scale Attack” Expected In “Coming Days”

Ukraine's President Volodymyr Zelensky is giving a major speech addressing the nation related to the crisis with Russia this evening, which is being aired on national channels. Over the past days authorities in Kiev have tried to calm the sense of panic among the population that's been stoked largely by ultra-alarmist reports coming from both the White House and Western media in general.

According to local media, "It should be noted that the last time Zelensky addressed the nation on January 25 on the eve of the meeting of the Normandy advisers in Paris and announced hopes for progress in a peaceful settlement in Donbass."

This is as on Monday Interfax is reporting that Ukraine's government assesses that there's no full-scale Russian in the coming days, which stands in direct contradiction to the latest statements out the White House alleging precisely that Russia will invade in a matter of "days". 

Bloomberg writes of the fresh Interfax report: "Ukrainian law-enforcement agencies don’t see a large-scale Russian attack happening Feb. 16-17, Interfax-Ukraine news agency reports citing Oleksiy Danilov, secretary of the National Security and Defense Council."

Danilov described that the situation is "fully under control" and suggested that it's part of the Russian playbook to promote fear and instability in Ukrainian society – a somewhat ironic assessment given the actual source of the panic. 

However, Danilove "Doesn’t rule put provocations after Russian parliament votes laws on self-proclaimed republics on Tuesday," according to Bloomberg.

Meanwhile, regional tensions have perhaps cooled a bit after Putin acknowledged talks with the United States will continue, and that some of the Russian military drills in the south are coming to an end. One key issue will be whether the Kremlin sends any level of troops back to their home bases. 

On this front, Russia's foreign minister also affirmed dialogue with both NATO and Washington remains open. "Russia will continue seeking answers from Western colleagues to its questions about security guarantees, while simultaneously developing a dialogue on other aspects of this topic, Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said at a meeting with President Vladimir Putin on Monday," TASS news agency wrote. 

"We, developing a dialogue on some aspects that are of practical importance today, with our Western, primarily American colleagues. We will simultaneously seek their answers to the legitimate questions that we have raised," Lavrov emphasized of the security proposals still under consideration.
