Poroshenko: Ukrainian flag to fly again over Crimea
The Ukrainian flag will again fly over Crimea, as the annexation of the peninsula by Russia was unjustified, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said in his speech in the Polish Sejm on Wednesday.
"Crimea for us is an open wound,” Poroshenko said.
“There is no justification for the annexation of the Crimea. This is a flagrant violation of international law.
"I believe that the Ukrainian flag will fly again over this multi-ethnic peninsula.”
Poroshenko also praised his Polish hosts for the support they have shown for Ukraine.
"The Ukrainian-Polish partnership is an example of the constructive cooperation between our countries at various levels."
"Ukraine and Poland should be proud of their recent history. I want to thank Poland for its support for Ukraine on its way to European integration.”
