He said that in light of this, one of Ukraine’s main tasks is the mobilization of all of its available resources.

"The ceasefire, which is constantly being violated by the militants, could turn at any moment into a serious confrontation, and Russia may begin a full-scale continental war, and [so] our task is to ensure there is a full mobilization of all of the resources available in the country so as to be ready to release the country from the threat of war," Turchynov said.

Turchynov also said that martial law could be declared in the country if need be.
