Dmytro Kułeba visited NATO headquarters in Brussels on Thursday. The head of the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry called on the Alliance countries to immediately rearm the Ukrainian army before the massive attack on the Donbas planned by Russia.
– Either you help us now, and I’m talking about days, not weeks, or your help will come too late and many people will die, many civilians will lose their homes, many villages will be destroyed, precisely because aid has arrived too late – Kułeba appealed in Brussels.
According to Ukrainian politicians, upcoming attack on Donbas it will resemble the clashes of the Second World War with the use of a thousand tanks, planes and armored vehicles.
Massacre in Bucza
Kułeba also refers to Russian crimes in Bucza. As he points out, the atrocities seen in this city and other parts of northern Ukraine occupied by Russian troops are “only the tip of the iceberg” of war crimes committed by Putin’s forces. Kuleba said that in besieged Mariupol the situation was “much, much worse”.
Ukraine’s foreign minister said the Ukrainian army respects the laws of war, but added that “there may be individual violations” of the rules that would be investigated.
