Ukrainians prepare for war

By Alexandra Waldhorn

Ukraine began mobilising for war on Sunday, a day after Russian President Vladimir Putin declared that he had the right to invade the country. Western officials, including US Secretary of State John Kerry, said there would be a strong response to any Russian action and Nato allies are pushing for the deployment of international observers to Ukraine. RFI spoke to Leysa Orobets, a Ukrainian member of parliament, about her hopes after months of leading the protests.
