Ukrainian president Petro Poroshenko today said he is ready for ‘total war’ against Russia as he claimed the crisis in eastern Europe is more serious than the threat from Islamic State.

Kiev is convinced that Moscow is strengthening its troop presence on its borders and inside rebel-held areas, which the Kremlin has repeatedly denied.

As Putin returned from the G20 in Brisbane where he was under siege from Western leaders, Poroshenko claimed his army is now better prepared to fight to defend its territory than when the conflict began.

‘I am not afraid of a war with Russian troops,’ he said.

‘We are prepared for a scenario of total war.

‘We don’t want war, we want peace and we are fighting for European values.’

He told Germany’s Bild newspaper the unfolding drama on the edge of the EU was more critical than the Islamic State defiance.

‘There are thousands of Russian soldiers, hundreds of tanks and heavy artillery in my country,’ he insisted.

‘This is one of the largest armies in the world, which threatens not only us, but also the whole of Europe.’
