Adviser to the Head of the Office of the President of Ukraine, Oleksiy Arestovych has asked Ukrainians to calm down as Russian military is only targeting military-industrial complex facilities and infrastructure.
Since February 24, 2022, the adviser to the Head of the Office of the President of Ukraine on Strategic Communications in the Field of National Security and Defense, Oleksiy Arestovych has been holding daily briefings on the current situation regarding the conflict between Russian and Ukraine.
In a recent video on March 31 the advisor comments on an alleged mass panic among journalists and Ukrainian MPs that are worried about possible Russian massive strike.
“There is no point in wasting rockets that cost millions of dollars, tens of millions of dollars in one salvo to kill some Ukraine MP or a journalist. Even if they hit, they will hit on military-industrial complex facilities and on infrastructure,” Arestovych explained.
“They are firing every night. And every week the intensity of these attacks increases. I don’t reason to panic. Of course, it may not hit the target and hit a civilian, air defense can shoot something down and its remains could fall on a residential building … But, it is the 36th day, so leave the panic,” the presidential adviser added.
Arestovych has asked everyone to stop scaring each other with the messages about the massive Russian attack, which “actually happens every single day on the rise, and it will be for a very, very long time”.
