“The very hectic schedule of the President also includes the trip to New-York on February, 20, where for the first time the debates will start from the new agenda item – the current situation on the occupied territories of Ukraine. This new item was included to this coming session, and it is rather symbolic that the debates will be held on the fifth anniversary since the beginning of the Russian aggression”, - Yelisieiev said.
According to the Deputy of the Head of the Presidential Administration, Poroshenko intends to remind everyone from “the highest rostrum in the world” once again about the Russian aggression, which includes not only military attacks but also humanitarian and ecological crimes.
“The trip also includes the meeting with the President of the United Nations General Assembly; the program is rather hectic as well. It will be a short one-day visit, as the President has to return to Ukraine”, - Yelisieiev added.
