President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko expects that the upcoming meeting between U.S. President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin will confirm that Ukraine is on the frontline of European and transatlantic politics.

Poroshenko wrote this in his blog on The Financial Times.

"This is a significant week for Ukraine as it faces substantial challenges to its security and stability. It started with Monday’s Ukraine-EU summit in Brussels, followed by the NATO summit, in which Ukraine will also participate. And the meeting next week in Helsinki between Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin will confirm that Ukraine is on the frontline of European and transatlantic politics," the president wrote.

He believes that the current "Ukrainian week" will send a powerful message that will be heard in Brussels and beyond — most importantly in Helsinki.

"Based on our agreed approach of doing nothing on Ukraine without Ukraine, I wish Mr Trump well in his efforts to bring Mr Putin back into line. Knowing the Russian president as I do, I would bet that he craves our defeat. But that is not an option, and never will be," Poroshenko stressed.
