I et intervju med det kanadiske CBC sier Ukrainas viseutenriksminister Vadym Prystaiko at hans land forbereder seg på en «krig i full skala mot Russland».
Ukraine’s deputy foreign minister says he is preparing for «full-scale war» against Russia and wants Canada to help by supplying lethal weapons and the training to use them.
Vadym Prystaiko, who until last fall was Ukraine’s ambassador to Canada, says the world must not be afraid of joining Ukraine in the fight against a nuclear power.
«The stakes are really high,» Prystaiko says, pointing out that Ukraine has now closed its border crossing with Russia. «We don’t want to scare everybody, but we are preparing for full-scale war.»
