Both the Crimea and the Donbas will be returned to Ukraine, according to the statement of President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko on his Facebook page.
“Ukraine will never accept any bargain, any covert agreements. And the Crimea will be returned to Ukraine. We will do everything possible to ensure that this is done as soon as possible, immediately after the presidential elections,” Poroshenko said.
For you have heard Putin’s repeated statements that nothing to be done before the presidential election, because he very much hopes that anyone except Poroshenko will be elected so that the new Ukrainian government will crawl on its knees and present him with Crimea. My position is: Keep dreaming! We will liberate the Crimea.
Earlier, President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko thanked partners from the EU Council for extending a large package of sanctions against more than 160 individuals and about 50 legal entities responsible for undermining the territorial integrity of Ukraine, as well as for launching the introduction of the Azov package of sanctions for an act of Russian armed aggression in the Black Sea and a gross violation of freedom of navigation in the Kerch Strait.
