Quote: "In recent days, there has been a lot of different information about possible reinvasion of the region by Russian troops coming from the Belarusian border. That is why we have conducted a field visit together with the heads of the regional police and checked security measures.

To date, everything in the area is calm. The information you see on social media about there being some active hostilities is not true. Everything is fine in Kyiv Oblast at the moment and the situation is completely under the control of the Ukrainian security forces."

Details: At the same time, Kuleba reminded that "unfortunately, at present Kyiv Oblast is constantly under the threat of invasion and under the threat of missile strikes."

Background: On 27 May, Russian independent media outlet Medusa quoted two sources close to the Kremlin and one directly in the Russian presidential administration as saying that the Kremlin was again discussing a possible assault on Kyiv and still hoped for a full-scale victory in the war against Ukraine.

On 28 May, Deputy Defence Minister Hanna Malyar assured that the Defence Ministry did not see any signs that Russia was gearing up for a new offensive on Kyiv.
