‘This hybrid war is aimed to undermine the norms of Ukraine and the entire democratic world.  By hitting from inside but not through direct attacks. It is getting prepared not only for Ukrainian elections but for the European Parliament elections too. Very actively. Preparing for the elections in selected countries of the European Union. What for? In order to undermine the unity of the European Union. There is a clear understanding: what is the point of going to war with Europe if you can dilute the European idea itself? Why conquer someone physically, if it can be done spiritually and mentally?' Poroshenko claimed.
