Russia has cautioned against the potential deployment of NATO forces into Ukraine, deeming such action as highly precarious. Moscow underscores its vigilance regarding a Ukrainian petition advocating for international military intervention, particularly from the United States, Britain, and allied nations, to counter Russia’s ongoing incursion.

“The Kyiv regime is quite unpredictable,” said Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov when asked about it at his daily briefing.

“We have repeatedly said that direct intervention on the ground in this conflict by the military of NATO countries potentially carries enormous danger, so we consider this an extremely challenging provocation, nothing less, and, of course, we are watching this very carefully.”

The attainment of the requisite 25,000 votes to prompt a response from President Volodymyr Zelenskiy—either in approval or rejection—remains uncertain regarding the petition’s status. As of Wednesday morning, the number of votes garnered by the petition remains undisclosed.
