Ukrainian parliament member Kira Rudik joined Fox News on Sunday discuss the ongoing advance on Kyiv by Russian forces.
During the interview, Rudik provided an update on the efforts Ukrainians are making to defend against Putin’s invasion, highlighting how countless civilians have “taken up arms” and are standing at the ready – including herself.
The people are “ready to fight” for their country, Rudik said. When asked if she was “surprised” to see Ukrainians displaying such strong will to defend their country by fighting back against Russia, Rudik explained:
“I’m not surprised. We have been fighting Putin for the last 8 years and we had three other revolutions in our country when we did not agree with what was going on with the direction we were moving in.”
“But right now it’s a critical time because we know that we not only fight for Ukraine, [but] we fight for this New World Order for the democratic countries. We [know] that we are the shield for the Euro. We [know] that we are protecting not only Ukraine, [but] we are protecting like all the other countries that would be next if we failed. That’s why we just cannot fail,” she added.
