Kuleba: Ukraine is ready to fight with shovels if there are no arms supplies

Foreign Minister Dmitry Kuleba said that Ukraine will defend itself with “shovels” from Russian military aggression in the event of a cessation of the supply of Western weapons. This was reported by the German TV channel ARD.

The minister stressed that no one in the West should believe that Ukraine would be more willing to make concessions without the supply of weapons.

– If we do not get weapons, well, then we will fight with shovels, but we will defend ourselves, because this war is a war for our existence,” Kuleba said.

At the same time, the minister noted that there are much fewer weapons in Ukraine than in Russia.

– Therefore, the sooner we receive weapons, the sooner they are sent, the more help will be for us. If the weapons are sent later, we will still say thank you, but then a lot will be wasted, many people will die, he said. although the Biden administration had previously hesitated to take that step. However, Pentagon spokesman Kirby hinted on the evening of May 27 that a decision had not yet been made.
