on social media

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko delivered his vision of peace and security in Ukraine and Europe during his speech in Chatham House Royal Institute of International Affairs Conference in London on April 19.

During his two-day visit to the United Kingdom, Poroshenko discussed UK-Ukraine-NATO cooperation, and also called British lawmakers to consider introducing visa-free travel for Ukrainians.

The president also met with British business leaders and discussed the investment climate in Ukraine, and the prospects for British investment in Ukraine.

In his speech at Chatham House, Poroshenko was scathing on Russia, saying that the war in the Donbas was not only a battle for Ukrainian nation against Russian intervention, but also a fight for the future of Europe and the rest of the “free world.”

We don't have peace for one reason: the Russians are not interested in reaching peace. They are interested in exerting control,” Poroshenko said.

Russia’s drive for hegemony will not stop Ukraine,” he said.

not sure how the UK is helping Ukraine, but first they could STOP laundering Russian money. The UK signed the Budapest Agreement, so they have am obligation to support Ukraine in much more ways than today. Sanctions against Russia must be strengthened. They should be kicked out of the UN and SWIFT. more sanctions are needed right away. Stop all funding by Russians in Western politician systems. declare RT an extension of the Russian military and do not allow them to operate within any Western bounder.
