Poroshenko in Berlin: ‘Ukraine urgently needs Germany’s help’

President Petro Poroshenko has told a major German daily that he will ask Angela Merkel for non-lethal military support during his visit to Berlin. He said that the Minsk ceasefire had been broken more than 1,000 times.

“The entire world needs to understand that Russia is waging a war against Ukraine,” Poroshenko said. “It began with Russian separatists, who were supported with Russian weapons in early 2014. And since the summer, regular Russian troops are in Ukraine – tens of thousands of soldiers. The only way to stop this war is the complete withdrawal of Russian troops.”

The visiting president told Bild that he would ask Angela Merkel about procuring more non-lethal military equipment, such as radar, drones, radios and night-vision goggles, mentioning the protective vests already supplied by Germany.
