Poroshenko to world community: "Stop being naïve about Russia’s intentions"
The world community must stop being naïve about Russia’s true intentions and continue sanctions against the aggressor state until sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine are restored, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko wrote in his op-ed for Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung titled "The end of the masquerade".
"We should finally stop being so naïve with respect to Russia’s true intentions, as we were in 2008 or in 2014-2015. It has no desire to end its aggression if we do not stop them together. Fraud and manipulation are only effective if solidarity and foresight are lacking," Poroshenko wrote.
