Two members of the Ukrainian Parliament are calling for NATO to announce a military no-fly zone over Ukraine.

Insider reported that Kira Rudik, the leader of Ukraine's Holos Party, and Ivanna Klympush of the European Solidarity Party said Western sanctions had not worked and called for the no-fly zone.

"It's about actually sending more military capabilities to Ukraine through any land corridor, and preparing to send troops to Ukraine at some point," Klympush said. "All of those things have been done in other parts of the world and they saved lives."

Rudik agreed, saying: "He [Putin] invaded and there are sanctions. So now what? Now the question is, Are we going to receive military help, a no-fly zone over Ukraine, or will we not receive it, and NATO and the West will show their inability to oppose one of the greatest dictators?"

If NATO did impose a no-fly zone it would effectively mean that its members, including the U.S. and U.K., would be authorized to shoot down any Russian aircraft that enter the airspace over Ukraine, Insider noted.
