"I was impressed by Frenchmen singing La Marseillaise and writing: 'We are not afraid.' It is the way Europe should go. We are together in a single anti-terrorist coalition," the Head of State said.

Thousands of Ukrainian civilians and servicemen died because of war. However, Ukrainians keep fighting for democracy and the European path has become a national idea," Poroshenko emphasized.
The Head of State emphasized that the world should unite in the fight against terrorism. "Strong and efficient unity can protect us from terrorism. Weak unity will mean the victory of terrorism," he said.
Answering the question whether Russia's involvement in the fight against terrorism in Syria will affect Ukraine, the President noted that there was no Russia's involvement, because Russia supported Assad's regime.

"My main message today – let us unite. I count on global solidarity with Ukraine. Let us unite in our global struggle against terrorism," the President said.
