President Poroshenko: Russia has always used democracy of neighbors in its own interests

Russia has always used advantages of the democratic systems in neighboring states in order to absorb them.

President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko has stated this in his address on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of beginning of the Ukrainian Revolution of 1917-1921, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"Russia has always used the advantages of democratic systems in neighboring states in order to absorb them: from the time of Novgorod and the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth and ending with Central Europe after the World War II," the Head of State said.

The President stressed that even now shattering of the situation in our state from within was one of the methods of the Kremlin's hybrid war against Ukraine.
