Philip Carbury, an American expert on military issues, believes that in order to curb the aggressive actions of the Russian Federation in Ukraine, 4 million Ukrainians should be given weapons, Joinfo.ua reports referring to TSN.
“It is not only the country, but people need to be organized. You want to stop Putin? Arm four million Ukrainians. Give them combat weapons. That is, don’t give it to every Ukrainian just like that on the street. But levy volunteers, send them on trainings several times a month, let them deepen their skills, you have comprehensive inner reserves, there are many responsible people, they can educate the local population,” Carbury said in an interview.
He believes that four million Ukrainians would be the most ‘eloquent message’ for Putin.
“There’s an old joke that the Chinese tank division is one million Chinese people with screwdrivers. If you want to save the country everyone has to be involved, everyone – it is a shared responsibility. You know, during WWII the American civil society had paid an incredibly high price to support their people in the war. I do not want to criticize or offend anyone, but you have a great potential to mobilize financial resources. In each town where there is at least a couple of thousand people, one should donate at least 100 hryvnia to help the army, there is not enough transport there,” the expert said.
