Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko held a conversation with Donald Tusk, President of the European Council. This was reported by the presidential press service.

Interlocutors coordinated positions before G7 summit, which is to take place on May 26-27, 2017.

Poroshenko told Tusk about situation in Donbas and continued violations of Minsk agreement by the Russian side. 

"There is no basis for lifting or any softening of economic and sectoral EU sanctions against the Russian Federation in such circumstances," Poroshenko noted.

Presidential press service says that, according to the president, such estimate should provide a foundation for decisions of the leaders of G7 and EU Council countries regarding extension of sanctions against Russia after July 31, 2017.

Both leaders also noted that they are waiting for the start of visa-free travels from June 11, 2017. Beyond that, presidents discussed ratification of the Association agreement between Ukraine and EU by the Dutch Senate and expressed hope for early completion of the process.

Beyond that, sides agreed to hold another Ukraine-EU summit on July 13, 2017, in Kyiv.

Press service later reported that Poroshenko also spoke with the French President Macron on the same occasion today. States’ leaders discussed situation in Donbas and supported work intensification in terms of Normandy format.

Poroshenko invited Emmanuel Macron to visit Ukraine at a convenient time.
