President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko expressed his gratitude for a strong and reliable position of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland in support of sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine.

This is reported by the press service of the Head of State.

The parties discussed the situation in Donbas. Theresa May also noted the importance of continuing the policy of sanctions against Russia as one of the efficient mechanisms for encouraging the aggressor to fulfill its international obligations.
