The Chairman of the Federation Council Commission on information policy Alexei Pushkov commented on the words of the first President of Ukraine Leonid Kravchuk, who said that to defeat Russia, Kiev will need support from the West.

“the Western countries do not impose against Russia “full political, diplomatic and financial-economic exclusion”, because I can’t do it. Kravchuk, apparently, does not understand” — wrote Pushkov in his Twitter.

The Senator added that Ukraine needs the West to confront Russia, not by itself.

As REGNUM reported earlier, Kravchuk said that “to stop Russia, or more precisely — the Kremlin and the Kremlin leaders” only tough measures forces, “a coalition United in support of Ukraine.”

He has also stated that Moscow needs a “full economic and financial sanctions,” Russia needs to be absolutely dipsomania.

However, Kravchuk said about the inadmissibility of military action, given nuclear weapons.
