The diplomat stressed that now Kiev needs to organize a high level of international support for the country in order to avoid war.
At the same time, the head of the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry noted that in the event of a conflict, Russia will have to pay a high price. “We are not trying to understand what is in the head of [Russian President Vladimir] Putin.
