Vice Prime Minister of Ukraine Iryna Vereshchuk stressed during the live broadcast of the Italian television LA7 TV: the war with Russia will continue until Ukraine has enough weapons to repel the aggressor. Only the joint efforts of the international community and Ukraine will stop Russia.

"The war will continue until we have enough weapons to give a real rebuff to the enemy," Iryna Vereshchuk said.

"We do not have the necessary weapons now. We have promised, but we do not have the weapons we are counting on. The war will end sooner if the economic sanctions imposed by the West are even more effective, even more decisive. And if the oil and gas embargo works. Putin will not have the economic potential for new missiles."

The Deputy Prime Minister warned that such an aggressive policy of the nuclear state demonstrated by Russia is dangerous for the whole world: yesterday Georgia was attacked, then yesterday Moldova, today Ukraine, and tomorrow the European Union may be.

"Believe us - those who lose their best men and women every day for the existence of values, freedoms and international humanitarian law in Europe, in the civilized world. For there to be states that have the right to choose. Putin will not stop if we do not force him to stop together! But without weapons it is impossible to do, diplomacy will not work. The firm hand of a Ukrainian soldier with a weapon will work, our motivation, your support, economic sanctions,” Iryna Vereshchuk emphasized.
