Petro Poroshenko, the President of Ukraine urged the EU to send the second mission of the ambassadors of the EU Political and Security Committee to Donbas. He claimed this at the joint briefing with Federica Mogherini, the Vice President of the European Commission as 112 Ukraine broadcasted.
‘I appealed to Mrs High Representative of the EU for Foreign Affairs and Security Police with the offer to second the second mission of the ambassadors of the EU Political and Security Committee to Donbas for the awareness with the current situation in Donbas and to see with their own eyes how Russia fulfill its commitments on the Minsk Agreements. The first mission was here in September 2015. Now, I think it will be fair if it sees how the situation changed’, Poroshenko claimed.
According to him, after the visit, the EU will have no doubts towards the extension of the sector sanctions against Russia.
‘I am sure that then in June any European capital will think to weaken the anti-Russian sanctions in the case of the non-implementation of the Minsk Agreements’, Poroshenko claimed.
Today Mogherini pays a visit to Ukraine. Also, she held the meeting with Volodymyr Groysman, the Prime Minister of Ukraine.
