Poroshenko informed the American side “of the act of armed aggression against Ukraine in the Kerch Strait committed by Russia, as well as the relevant steps of the Ukrainian side, in particular, the introduction of the martial law regime.”

The President noted that Russia’s unlawful actions are “unacceptable and should receive the most severe reaction of the international community, including the strengthening of sanctions against the Russian Federation.”
