The Head of the State said it during the annual speech in the Parliament. According to him, Ukraine did everything to prevent such scenario. 'It’s essential that the sanctions against Moscow are now connected not only with Ukraine. It means that we clearly understand that Russia is not just our problem, that it’s a threat to the whole civilized world. We will gradually counterwork the attempts to weaken sanction regime against Russia. Kremlin’s tactical task is to lift the sanctions in January next year as allegedly Ukraine did not fulfil Minsk Agreements; I think that we have to destroy this scenario. We won’t the lifting happen. But, know that there is a risk of easing,' the President said.
