Russia believes it must ‘revive’ the Soviet Union and the Russian Empire

Ukraine’s ambassador to Australia, Vasyl Myroshnychenko, says Russia believes it needs to “revive” the Soviet Union and the Russian Empire.

“Russians have invaded us because they want us to stay outside the EU,” he told Sky News Australia.

“They just believe they need to revive the Soviet Union, revive the Russian Empire, and that was the main reason why the Russians objected so much to Ukraine’s accession – provisional accession to NATO.

“Because if we become part of NATO, Russians can never invade us, and they always wanted to invade, and now they have.”
