Documents like Budapest Memoranda provide less security than a single nuclear charge, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said in his opening speech at the 14th Yalta European Strategy Annual Meeting “Is This a New World? And What Does It Mean for Ukraine?” in Kyiv on Friday.

"'What does not kill you makes you stronger.' These words of Friedrich Nietzsche, to my mind, fully reflects the essence of the current events in geopolitics," Petro Poroshenko said.

"Are we already living in the new world? I think we are not yet there. Could we go back to calm and stable, as we assumed, world order? No, we could not," he said.
