Poroshenko admitted that most of all wants the lifting of sanctions against Russia

The President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko today in an interview with German newspaper Morgenpost admitted that most of all wants the abolition of anti-Russian sanctions.


“Who do you think wants the lifting of sanctions? President Petro Poroshenko,” — said the Ukrainian President.


However, Poroshenko stressed that before “Russia must withdraw all its troops from the territory of Ukraine”, and the premature easing of sanctions allegedly can lead to a strengthening of the “Russian aggression against Ukraine.”


Earlier during his visit to Germany Poroshenko called for the retention of anti-Russian sanctions and called for increased sanctions against Russia, if Minsk agreement will not be implemented.
