8:05 am
these historic claims are, this has not been received very well in ukraine. ukrainians see themselves as very distinct off russians. and increasingly so while the country was 20 years ago, still divided out of whether on whether it should be leaning towards russia or other to the west that has dramatically shifted in the past few years, especially since the 2014, since these proxy was in the don bass, where russia is engaged and since the seizure of crimea and her and unsurprisingly, ukraine is looking for other allies to help itself for protect, to protect itself. and that is, of course, sir, and for that ukraine is looking to the west. so i'm in pause, there's a clear majority now saying that ukraine should join the not nato of, of, or, of course, this is not on the table right now,
8:06 am
but this is the direction where ukraine is heading. now in for the president putin's view, ukraine has become a tool for nato members to be used against russia. hottest ukraine respond to that . yeah, as i said, it has a majority of ukrainians, is now favoring a membership in nato and her. this is something that is very important from for, for many here. and her, you can, is do not see themselves as a tool, but they see themselves as a nation. that is choosing its allies according to their own necessities but ukrainian present. soleski has announced an increase and no ukrainian troop numbers tell us more. yeah, days are going to be a reform, according to the president of the ukrainian army, the ukrainian army is now
