Defense Minister: prepare reserves 

Defense Minister: prepare reserves 
Translated by: Mariya Shcherbinina

Defense Minister Colonel General Stepan Poltorak stated today that he is convinced Ukraine should prepare reserve troops “to be prepared for the unpredictable action on part of Russia or the terrorists in the east of Ukraine.”

“We have to learn from the mistakes that were made earlier. Besides personnel, we need to prepare reserve equipment and weaponry. The personnel has to go carry out military missions and be prepared to fight,” he stated.

According to the minister, there is a possibility of another turn of mobilization, however the President has to approve the decision as the Head Command.

Besides, Stepan Poltorak said at a press conference after a meeting with Canadian Defense Minister Robert Nicholson in Kyiv, Ukraine is always ready for a ceasefire in the east of the country.

The Canadian minister, on his part, stated at the conference that it is important to put continued pressure on Russia, so that it starts observing international law and respect Ukraine’s freedom and independence.
