According to Poroshenko, the Russian Federation uses Crimea for deploying missiles there, what creates an extremely dangerous situation and destabilizes the region.

"We must increase the presence of NATO ships in the Black Sea," the president said. At the same time, he noted that "after the illegal annexation of Crimea, the balance of strength in the Black Sea was completely destroyed."

The President does not rule out the opportunity of further aggression by the Russian forces in the Black Sea.

"That is why the presence of NATO ships will be a factor of stabilization," the Head of State said.

As we reported earlier, the Federal Chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany Angela Merkel claimed that the current situation in Donbas is “far from being solved.” 

Besides, the Chancellor pointed out that Berlin supports the sanctions against Russia and the Minsk agreement.

The European Union will approve the “Azov package” of sanctions against the Russian Federation. According to Poroshenko, the project consists of 124 pages, and the price that Russia has to pay for the act of aggression against Ukraine will increase this time.
