Moray welcomed the implementation of reforms in Ukraine. “We have seen that in the two years that had passed since our previous visit, Ukraine under Your leadership has done a lot of reforms in different sectors: the fight against corruption, reform of the banking sector and the energy sector. This result is really fascinating, the more because these reforms are carried out in conditions of actual war. So we want to congratulate You with these achievements,” he said.

Poroshenko, in turn, expressed hope for the support of France for further steps towards the integration of Ukraine into the EU.

Earlier it was reported that Germany and France will develop the concept of the presence of “blue helmets” in the Donbas.
