Without the efforts of international partners Russian aggression cannot be stopped. The President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko said this at the celebration of the Navy Day in Odesa.
"I think that, if not for the efforts of our EU partners, the United States, Canada, Japan, Australia, all over the world that have implemented the sanctions, the situation would be much worse. Aggression wouldn’t be stopped. The decrease of aggression is the result of joint actions of Ukraine (and its Armed Forces) and the world, which imposes sanctions. They are applied because the world recognizes that Russia does not fulfill its obligations. Therefore, I am grateful to the leaders of EU countries for extending sanctions against the Russian Federation. The United States and other countries also extended sanctions, which is a powerful motivation for the Russia to make steps towards negotiations and fulfill its obligations", he said.
