Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has said that it is necessary to draw up a new program of cooperation between Ukraine and the European Union.

"We need a new and ambitious program of further cooperation with the EU, including with Ukraine's participation in the digital union, the energy union, the discussion of the expansion of other areas of our activities, including the customs union, the Schengen union and other positions on Ukraine's further promotion to the EU," Poroshenko said.
