“Together with the powerful international pro-Ukrainian coalition, we should finally make Russia to fully implement the Minsk agreements,” the Head of State noted in a meeting with the heads of diplomatic missions of foreign states and international organizations accredited in Ukraine.
The President expressed gratitude to the partners of Ukraine in the Normandy format - Germany and France. “I wish all the best to Chancellor Merkel, and believe that the emerging government coalition in Germany will be based on steady support of Ukraine and its territorial integrity, sovereignty and independence,” Petro Poroshenko said.
He also thanked President of France Emmanuel Macron for his leadership and vision of a new Europe, Austria as the OSCE chairmanship last year and wished every success to Italy’s chairmanship this year. “We are looking forward to closely cooperating on bringing peace back on the Ukrainian land,” the President stressed.
Petro Poroshenko commended the brave and committed activity of numerous SMM OSCE observers in the occupied Donbas. “Even the threat to their health and lives from Russian occupation forces does not stop them from fulfilling their noble mission,” he said.
“There is nothing impossible when we all join our efforts and speak with one voice. Christmas release of hostages is a brilliant example,” the Head of State emphasized.
