President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko called on the international community to exert pressure on Russia, since it is a threat for the global security. He stated this in an interview with Sky News, according to the presidential press service.

Poroshenko noted that the Russian Federation is a problem not only for Ukraine, but also for the whole world, because no one knows what Putin’s next actions will be.

"It is possible that Putin will decide to defend Nord Stream 2, and therefore to attack the Baltic countries, the Scandinavian countries. There are no red lines for Putin," he said.

Poroshenko also noted that he expects solidarity with Ukraine and organization of pressure from the international community to de-escalate the situation and liberate Ukrainian sailors.

The head of state added that he had already seen the message of US President Donald Trump on Twitter, where he said that he had decided to cancel the meeting with Putin if he did not respond to the request to release the sailors.

“I think this is a reaction where Putin is completely isolated. After the chemical attack in Britain, after the terrorist attack on MH17 and the aggression in the east of my country, after Syria, after all these terrible things, Putin is isolated,” Poroshenko said.

As is known, Donald Trump had intended to meet with Putin in Argentina at the G20 summit, but decided to cancel the meeting due to the Russian aggression in the Sea of Azov, where Russia captured 3 Ukrainian ships and arrested 24 Ukrainian sailors.
