He underlined that Ukraine has "the legal right to self-defense when its territory is shelled day and night with heavy Russian weapons, and civilians and soldiers are killed."

Therefore, Ukraine, the ambassador says, for its part, "calls on the German government, instead of expressing concern about the dramatic situation in the occupied territories, to redouble its efforts as a mediator to convene a Normandy summit in Berlin, as agreed, and put Moscow in place".
