Poroshenko declared that “Ukraine is in a state of war,” and that Russia is waging “a new type of warfare – with the use of professional subversive groups, mercenaries, volunteers, and the local population. And these volunteers and the local population have ‘washed’ brains in a huge part due to the information war.”

The president said the Ukrainian military will halt their operations in eastern Ukraine, in the hopes that the Russian-backed militants who have been fomenting separatism there will lay down their arms.

“The plan starts with my order of unilateral ceasefire. We should gain support [for] the president’s peace plan [from] all the participants in the Donbas…immediately after that,” said Poroshenko.
