Ukrinform
President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko has stated that the participants in the blockade of Donbas railway block the struggle for Ukraine’s territorial integrity rather than the militant-held territories.

The Head of State said this, opening the National Security and Defence Council meeting on Thursday, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"I want to emphasize that they block and create problems not to the militant-held territories of Donetsk and Luhansk regions. They [participants in the blockade] block Ukraine, our struggle for the restoration of territorial integrity, which is actually our main goal," the President said.

Poroshenko noted that Ukraine could regain its territories solely by political and diplomatic means, reproaching some politicians who claim that the occupied Ukrainian lands must be simply cut off.
