Recognition of fake documents by Russia requires enhancement of sanctions - Poroshenko

President Petro Poroshenko had a meeting with EU Commissioner for Humanitarian Aid and Crisis Management Christos Stylianides.

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

“We observe constant violation of the Minsk agreements. We can see not only ceasefire violation, but also absolutely cynical decision to recognize fake documents of fake republics,” the President said.

“In terms of international law, this is an element of recognition of these illegal formations and, de-facto, refusal from the Minsk process, as these steps are incompatible with the implementation of the Minsk agreements. We think it is an extremely alarming phenomenon that requires decisive action up to the enhancement of sanctions,” Poroshenko noted.

EU Commissioner Stylianides has clearly emphasized that the EU continues to fully support Ukraine and exert considerable diplomatic efforts aimed at full implementation of the Minsk agreements by Russia based on unconditional respect for sovereignty, territorial integrity and independence of Ukraine.
