President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko claimed that there are a lot of people in the West who want to "gaze into Putin's soul or I do not know where else" after all aggressive actions of Russia. Poroshenko claimed this during his annual speech at the parliament as 112 Ukraine reported.
"Even now, after the thousands of deaths in Donbas, after MH17 tragedy, Syris, Sulisbury; there a lot of people in the West who want to gaze into Putin's soul or I do not know where else. I am interested, what do you want to see there? Everyone already sees it – Russia supports the right-wing and left-wing and populist movements, stirs up the Euroskepticism, interferes into elections and referendums all over the world as it was in the Netherlands. Kremlin promotes its alternative agenda, values in such way, hoping that it will be difficult for the West to keep the unified position towards Moscow," Poroshenko claimed.
We remind that in 2001, U.S. President George Bush claimed that he "looked into eyes" of Vladimir Putin and "gazed into his soul" and saw that he is 'direct and credible person".
Earlier Poroshenko claimed about the risk of easing of anti-Russian sanctions during his speech at the Verkhovna Rada.
Also, on September 19, the order of President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko on the decision of the National Security and Defense Council dated September 2018 "On Treaty on friendship, cooperation and partnership between Ukraine and Russian Federation" came into force.
