Russia does not want to accept the law of Ukraine on the European path and its own civilizational choice. This was stated by President Petro Poroshenko at the meeting with heads of foreign diplomatic institutions of Ukraine, the correspondent of ЛІГА.net.
“Russia does not want to accept the fact that Ukraine has a right to their own civilizational choice. We fought for this right for years and centuries. Russia can not accept the fact that Ukraine has chosen the European path and to date, the lion’s share of our society firmly supports the European and Euro-Atlantic integration,”- said Poroshenko.
The President added that Ukrainians want to live in peace, to be free and to live in a democratic state, to be independent, so the war in the Donbass is for Europe. “The war is for Europe, for European values, for the values that unite us,” he said.
