There is the Russian aggression in eastern Ukraine, but not the anti-terrorist operation (ATO), Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has said during his speech dedicated to the 440th anniversary of Ostroh Academy in Rivne region.

President Poroshenko stressed that the world should understand and recognize the fact of aggression in Donbas.

According to the president, the main purpose of Russians was to show the situation in eastern Ukraine that this was allegedly the domestic conflict within the country, where Russia was a “mediator”.
