“Unfortunately, Russia started implementing the scenario of a direct interference into the electoral process. I mean this 5th column, which is ready to run and conduct negotiations under the conditions of capitulation with Russia. I stress that nobody but us, the Ukrainians want peace, but peace under the conditions of the international law and national interests, not capitulation. Russia is trying to use modern informational technologies to discredit Ukraine’s and Moldova’s authorities. Not only Ukraine and Moldova but also most of the EU member states are affected by such policy,” Poroshenko noted.
Earlier, Poroshenko endured that the presidential elections in the country would be held on March 31, 2019. Martial law for 30 days was imposed in Ukraine due to Russia’s aggression in Kerch Strait.
