Petro Poroshenko called the APU the only army that is able to effectively contain Russia.
President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko said that the Ukrainian army has significantly increased its combat capability and occupies 8th place among European armies.
In particular, the President said during his official visit to the UK:
“Every year we spend 5% of GDP on security and defense more than some NATO members. Currently, the Ukrainian army occupies the eighth place in Europe,” the President said during a speech at Chatham House.
According to the head of state is the only army that is not only faced with Russian aggression, but able to contain it.
“It can make you feel safe. This prevents aggression from your homes. Isn’t this what the West needs to understand in the first place? I think that should be,” – said Poroshenko.
According to him, the West must understand that “the Kremlin is obsessed with its Imperial past.”
“Russia’s desire for hegemony will not stop at Ukraine. Yesterday it was Moldova and Transnistria, yesterday it was Georgia, Abkhazia and Ossetia. Today it is Syria and Ukraine. Who will be next?”, – said Poroshenko.
