Ukraine needs defense aid, foreign minister says

Pavlo Klimkin

TOKYO -- Shelling continues in eastern Ukraine despite a cease-fire between pro-Russian separatists and government forces, Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin said Monday, calling for international aid to help his country defend itself.

     "We don't have a sustainable cease-fire agreement," Klimkin told The Nikkei in an interview here. It is "critically important to increase the capability of our military forces. We need additional defensive weapons."
