The blockade has destroyed Ukraine in the Donbass – Poroshenko

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said that the blockade of the Donbas radicals has led to serious consequences for the country.


“It has destroyed Ukraine in the Donbass, is a very dangerous strategy and threat actions,” – said the leader of Ukraine in an interview with local television, adding that Kiev would act in connection with the situation decisively and effectively.


Poroshenko also argues that the scenario of the blockade was not established in Ukraine, and was conducted in order to justify Russia’s decision on recognition of passports DND and LNR and to nationalize Ukrainian enterprises by the self-proclaimed republics.


The Ukrainian President also commented on recent reports about the supply of products from Donbass to Russia. Poroshenko has promised to require the imposition of sanctions if this information proves true.


“If products are stolen from businesses will start shipping in Russia, we will demand the imposition of sanctions against these companies,” — said the Ukrainian President.


Earlier, coal supply to the territory of Russia from the DNR told the self-proclaimed head of the Republic Alexander Zakharchenko. In the Kremlin, in turn, said that he did not know about it.
