Speaking in Brussels, the head of the Petro Poroshenko Bloc faction, Yury Lutsenko, admitted that the Ukrainian people were ready to die for Europe only to hear the Europeans saying that they were "one blood" with the Ukrainians, Russia Today repports.
"What do we want from Europe? We are ready to shed blood for the freedom of Ukraine and Europe, but we also want to hear from them: we are the same deep water with you. Like in Kipling's books: Ukrainians, we are the same deep water with you. That's all we ask from the Dutch and from all Europeans. We will be on the first line of this war.
