KIEV, April 26. /TASS/. Ukraine needs offensive weapons, Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk said on Sunday.
"Today, the Ukrainian military are defending not only the borders of the state but also the integrity of entire Europe," he told the television Channel 5. That is why, in his words, "Western partners must help with weapons."
"We are not speaking about offensive arms, we are speaking about defensive weapons," he said.
Earlier, Ukraine’s President Pyotr Poroshenko told the French i-Tele channel his country, a big arms producer, needed no Western weapons to stabilize the domestic situation. "Now we are speaking about assistance in strengthening defence capabilities" of the Ukrainian armed forces but not about supplies of lethal arms.
