Defense Minister of Ukraine Stepan Poltorak stated this, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.
"Ukraine is ready to defend its borders. We are ready to defend Europe. Unfortunately, not everyone understands this, because a few countries in the world are ready to defend their lands… Ukraine needs help and support," Poltorak said.
In his opinion, NATO countries were not ready for aggressive actions of Russia. According to the defense minister, the Kremlin will try to destroy NATO, as it tries to destroy the EU.
