Macron sends congratulations to Poroshenko and people of Ukraine

President of France Emmanuel Macron has congratulated President Petro Poroshenko and the Ukrainian nation on the Independence Day and expressed wishes of prosperity and peace.

This is reported by the Ukrainian president’s press service.

"France remains alongside Ukraine in the search of a lasting solution to the conflict that rages in the east of your country. Our support to Ukraine is constant due to the involvement of France in the Normandy format. I would like to reaffirm the commitment of France, as well as of the European Union, to the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine in its internationally recognized borders," reads the letter.

Macron also noted that "France does not recognize the illegal annexation of Crimea by Russia and considers the forceful revision of the borders contrary to international law”.

The French President also stressed that Ukraine has shown firmness by choosing the path of ambitious reforms, the first results of which are worth commending. According to him, the full implementation of the Association Agreement with the EU should demonstrate Ukraine's willingness to successfully complete this reformist impulse. "You can count on France's support to help you implement this demanding reform program and to accompany Ukraine on the way to deepening its partnership with the European Union," Emmanuel Macron noted.
