Any deal on Ukraine behind Ukraine will only worsen the situation. This was during the panel discussion “the Future of the West: the fall or return” (“The future of the West: Downfall or Comeback”) was declared by the President of Ukraine Petro Presencebased journalists “Today.”
“Encourage Russia today does not correspond to European values. I hear strong calls to appease Russia, and I think it would be dangerous to move in this direction, not only for Europe but for the world. Putin (the Russian President – Ed.) hates Ukraine. He believes that Ukraine does not have its identity. He said that Ukraine is part of Russian identity. Putin wants to paint a map of Europe in Russian colors. And it would be naive to assume that he is confined to the Ukraine,” said Poroshenko.
According to the President of Ukraine, is a historic chance for the new American Administration and the new transatlantic relations. Poroshenko said that today spoke with U.S. Secretary of state Rex Tillerson on the phone and he assured Poroshenko of her support and solidarity.
“We will never agree to someone behind us decided our fate. Any agreement behind our back will be cancelled and the millions of Ukrainians who have proved that they can defend Ukraine. Any transactions behind Ukraine worsen the situation. It is necessary to stop Russia and to enforce world order. The Budapest Memorandum evidence of Ukraine occupied the 3rd place in the nuclear potential, which we have voluntarily withdrawn. Support for Ukraine – the cheapest for the security of Europe and peace,” said Poroshenko.
