President Poroshenko: Crimea is the Ukrainian territory

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko says he will not bargain with Crimea for returning Donbas, eastern Ukraine.

President Poroshenko said this when opening a plenary sitting of the 13th YES Annual Meeting, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

“We will never accept [the annexation of Crimea] and will never bargain with Crimea for a good settlement [of the situation] in Donbas. Crimea is the Ukrainian territory. And that’s why I’m sure of support from this people, because it is a very dangerous precedent, which is taking place in the center of Europe in the 21st century. We must not allow this precedent to take place in principle,” he said.
