The Secretary of National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine Oleksandr Turchynov believes that the withdrawal of US from global leadership can provoke destabilization of the situation in the world. He stated this during the management staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine meeting, which was broadcast by 112 Ukraine TV Channel.

"US shifting away from global leadership could provoke other states to attempt to create or expand areas of influence. It can cause further destabilization, particularly in Eastern Europe, the Middle East, South and East Asia and in other regions of the world", he said.

According to Turchynov, the increasing of contradictions may lead to the emergence of a global conflict.

"The EU is overwhelmed by the migration crisis, the Greek debt crisis, the Dutch referendum on the association agreement with Ukraine, Brexit, influences the growth of radical anti-European forces and movements", he said.
