Commenting on the march of "Azov" activists, the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko said that attempts to derail the peace process are irresponsible to the state, and will only lead to the continued occupation of part of the Donetsk and Lugansk regions. He stated this during a meeting of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine.

Poroshenko stressed that the only way to restore the sovereignty of Ukraine over the occupied areas of Donbas is a political and diplomatic settlement.

"I have to mention a few words about today's march in Kyiv. The first were those pictures on Russian television - tires, firecrackers, reports of the wounded policemen, injured citizens. These images are distributed and deliberately played up to the idea that today people are allegedly trying to destabilize the situation in the state. I emphasize again, it is absolutely clear position - the military way for the return of the Donbas does not exist ", - said Poroshenko.
