President urges Ukrainian community of USA to continue supporting Ukraine in struggle against aggressor

President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko met with representatives of the Ukrainian community of the United States in the Ukrainian institute of America in New York.

This has been reported by the press service of the Head of State.

The President noted that the meeting was attended by the Crimean Tatars’ representatives. According to him, Chairman of the Mejlis Refat Chubarov informed that Crimean Tatars hadn’t participated in today’s elections in Crimea.

Petro Poroshenko congratulated the attendees on the 25th anniversary of restoration of the Ukrainian independence and noted that the given event had been overshadowed by the “black cloud of war” for the third year in a row.

The President emphasized that we had managed to revive the Ukrainian Armed Forces jointly, inter alia, with the assistance of Ukrainians from the United States.

The Head of State stressed that it was very important to continue sanctions against Russia. “Human rights violations in the occupied territories, inter alia, against the Crimean Tatars requires the introduction of additional sectoral sanctions,” the Head of State said calling for the development of the plan of actions jointly and working in that direction.
