Poroshenko said that during this month the UN Security Council adopted the resolution on the protection of critical infrastructure from terrorist attacks, held debates about the conflicts in Europe, which attracted worldwide attention to Russian aggression in Donbas, especially in the context of an escalation in Avdiivka.
