Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko in his interview with Fox News has called his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin “unpredictable,” adding that there are no “red lines” for the Russian president.


Poroshenko said that Putin had not only illegally annexed Crimea, Russia launched “military aggression against my country and brought “enormous losses”, according to the Ukrainian president who spoke with Fox News Thursday.

“10,000 people, including 2,700 soldiers and more than 7,000  civilians were killed in this war by Russian aggressor,” Poroshenko said, adding that “no red lines” exist for Russian President Vladimir Putin, as evidenced by the death toll in eastern Ukraine.
