Poroshenko stressed that “the Kremlin can never be trusted, under what modes they would conceal – tsarist, Communist or pseudo-democratic. History shows that aggression, lying, manipulation, repression and suppression of freedom of speech – one way or another are present in different forms that state. The most effective guard against the revival of the Imperial ambitions and appetites of Russia is a democratic, successful and independent Ukraine. Everything Russia is doing today in Ukraine, has only one goal: to get us in their so-called “sphere of influence”, to destroy the Ukrainian state as such. No country in the world has not faced such a big challenge and at the same time were able to achieve results on the front to counter Russian aggression, and at the front the necessary reforms.
