He stated this at a joint press conference with European Council President Donald Tusk and European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker in Brussels on Monday, July 9, according to an Ukrinform correspondent.

"Next year we will also have our own products, but this time we will be prepared for any provocations that may occur during the presidential and parliamentary elections. Therefore, any misinformation campaign will face a sharp reaction from Ukraine," Poroshenko said.
