Volodymyr Zelensky, the President of Ukraine stated that after the meeting with Polish President Andrzej Duda on the air of 112 Ukraine TV channel.
"We have coordinated our next steps for terminating the war in eastern Ukraine and return of the occupied Crimea. Our common and principle position is that without restoration of the territorial integrity of Ukraine, anti-Russian sanctions may be only strengthened after consideration of the EU," Zelensky said.
In turn, Andrzej Duda said that the sanctions policy concerning the Russian Federation should be continued as it is the most peaceful way to oblige Russia to observe the international right.
