Poroshenko outlines conditions of cooperation with Zelensky

The fifth president of Ukraine and the leader of the European Solidarity party, Petro Poroshenko, is ready to cooperate with the current president of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky, if he continues the course of European and Euro-Atlantic integration.

Poroshenko said this in an interview with German television channel ZDF.

“If President Zelensky implements what he stated [continuation of the course of European and Euro-Atlantic integration], I will definitely support him and Ukraine’s path towards Europe,” Poroshenko said.

According to him, this is the main task for the state.

In this context, Poroshenko called the increase in the number of supporters of joining NATO (from 16% to 58%) and the EU (from 33% to 70%) the main change that occurred during his presidency.

According to Poroshenko, politicians who are trying to stop the process of Ukraine’s movement to the West want to return the country under Russian influence and lead it to a very deep crisis.

The fifth president of Ukraine also sees “alarming signs” of the possibility of returning members of Yanukovych’s team to the country.

As reported, the snap parliamentary elections were held in Ukraine on Sunday, July 21.
