Poroshenko: Passing of Peres is loss for entire world
Ukrainian President came to Jerusalem to say farewell to long-standing Israeli leader
‘We are saying goodbye to a good friend of Ukraine. Shimon Peres is an outstanding figure of global scale; he has always put maximum efforts to keep the peace, putting principles of honor and respect for the human dignity above everything else. So this is a loss not only for Israel, but also for the whole world.’ President Petro Poroshenko said this during the official farewell ceremony for Shimon Peres, famous Israeli politician and long-standing president of the country.
Former president of Israel, Shimon Peres passed away at the age of 94. His health state rapidly deteriorated this week; earlier this month, he suffered a stroke.
