Mykhailo Podolyak, adviser to the head of the Office of the President of Ukraine, called on the Western partners to provide the country with all the necessary weapons as soon as possible, so that the allies do not have to "watch with tears in their eyes how our heroes die."
Podolyak told Channel 24 about this.
He noted that it is difficult for Ukraine's partners to make important decisions for civilization and history.
these decisions depend on whether the world will allow Russia to continue its behavior
and become an example for other totalitarian regimes in the destruction of international law and the right of other states to sovereignty.
"Today, these subjects like Lavrov and Peskov
come out periodically again
and say: "This is NATO continuing the escalation in Ukraine." The question is,
will we allow these people to continue lying?
Because we must take the same Lavrov and imprison him without fail to the dock so that he would understand there - "you attacked another country, you, Lavrov personally, attacked Ukraine.
There is no NATO, no escalation, no geopolitics." And we have to finish it, because if we don't finish it, this individual will constantly say it," the adviser to the OP chairman emphasized.
He noted that Ukrainians will fight on their own, and only weapons are needed from Western partners.
"We must correctly explain to our partners day after day that there is no need to be afraid. There are turning points in history when it is necessary (to make a decision - ed.). I understand that you were afraid before that and are afraid today. However,
Ukraine says: "We will decide decision, we will fight, and you just stand by and give weapons,
" said Podolyak.
He also emphasized that the slower partners provide weapons, the more Ukrainian soldiers die.
The adviser to the head of the OP reminded that Ukraine has repeatedly turned to its partners with the words:
"Give us weapons and we will destroy them."
"Do we have the right under international law to do this? We have! So
give me something! Do you want to see how this whole horde will attack us?
And then, when our boys will stand 10 against 1000, you will talk with tears in your eyes : "Look at the heroes". So let's not bring it to this point," urged Podolyak.
He added that this war is modern and high-tech, so if Ukraine gets all the necessary weapons, the allies will not have to "watch with tears in their eyes how our heroes die."
It will be recalled that earlier Podolyak had already turned to partners regarding weapons for Ukraine.
He explained that if there are no weapons, then the war will spread to the European Union, because Russia "will not stop the expansion."
It should be noted that Oleksiy Reznikov, the head of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, said that the Russian Federation may try to go on a new offensive around February 24.
So the minister called on NATO countries to provide more weapons.
Meanwhile, Russia convened a meeting of the UN Security Council due to the supply of weapons to Ukraine by the state's Western allies.
The meeting is scheduled for February 8.
