Verbatim: "The bodies of people with their hands tied have been found in the streets. They were shot dead by Russian soldiers. These people did not belong to the military forces. They did not have weapons. They did not pose any threat. How many more such cases are happening in the occupied territories right now?"
Mykhailo Podolyak added that Ukraine is not asking anyone to fight in its place against Russia, but that Ukraine needs weapons to defend herself.
