Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko says he wishes to stop the war in Ukraine and to prevent the beginning of WWIII.
"WWI ended 96 years ago. I want to stop the war now and to prevent anyone from starting the third world insanity," Poroshenko tweeted on Tuesday.
He also wrote on Facebook that four empires fell, about ten million people died and another ten million were wounded in WWI.
"No one in contemporary Europe celebrates the "Victory Day", just remembers the losses. There are no winners or losers in a war; all a war has is its survivors. In fact, [these are survivors] on both sides," Poroshenko stressed.
Two world wars are enough for humanity to understand the advantage of peaceful contests and competition, he said.
"Nowadays we are protecting the territorial integrity of Ukraine in the east and we will always protect our home land and our right to independence and development. Yet I believe in peaceful settlement and I deem it my duty to do the utmost to restore a peaceful life in Ukraine," the president said.
