President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky informed that in case of a Russian attack from the annexed Crimea, a "big war" would begin and both men and women would be mobilized. Zelensky said this in an interview with Focus magazine.
At the same time, the president expressed the hope that such a scenario would not happen.
"This is a terrible situation, I don’t even want to imagine it. I am against it. Let's hope that it’s impossible. Otherwise there will be a big war. We will not go anywhere, we will fight, everyone will be mobilized - both men and women. It will be bad for our population. And I think that Russia understands this clearly," the president said.
As we reported earlier, Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba stated that Ukraine's short-term goal in relations with Russia was to reach the principle of peaceful coexistence.
"I believe that the short-term goal in our relations with Russia is to reach the principle of peaceful coexistence. As of now, the war is a fact. We must end it and restore Ukraine's territorial integrity. Nonetheless, we understand that Russia's position on Ukraine will not change. Our goal - to find a way for peaceful coexistence," he noted.
