Ukraine’s first president, Leonid Kravchuk, has slammed Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and said he would take up arms to defend his homeland if Moscow does not retreat.
In an op-ed written for the Russian magazine snob.ru, Kravchuk said that Russian President Vladimir Putin had gone too far.
“They have gone beyond their base and occupied Crimea — it is conquered territory,” he said. “Russia violated the Budapest Memorandum. Ukraine has every reason to go to international arbitration.”
