The terrorists will not succeed. We will not allow them to intimidate Ukraine or undermine the work of diplomats. We will continue to defend our diplomatic front, draw weapons and energy equipment, strengthen Russia’s isolation and work on a tribunal for the leadership of the terrorist state,” Kuleba said.[/quote]
“They think they can scare us and stop us or weaken international support for Ukraine. I understand why they want this. Today, Ukrainian diplomacy is a powerful force that opposes the enemy. We have already strengthened security and are working with national law enforcement agencies of foreign countries and the Security Service of Ukraine to find and punish the scoundrels,” he said.
