    Two years into a war that has been largely forgotten, Ukraine’s defense minister says his country still needs lethal assistance to stop further Russian aggression while the Ukrainian military continues to modernize. General Stepan Poltorak sat down with VOA recently to discuss the challenges Ukrainian armed forces face. He said his military has come a long way from the corrupt, hollowed out force it was in 2014 when he took over as defense chief, but said it still needs much help as Russia shows no sign of ending its intervention in the east of his country. VOA Europe Correspondent Luis Ramirez reports from Kyiv.
