After that the Donbass militants seized Ukrainian enterprises, Ukraine can not deal with them. This was stated by President Petro Poroshenko at a meeting with Minister for European and Foreign Affairs of Luxembourg Jean Asselborn, - presidential press office reports.
“After the seizure of these enterprises we cannot have any trade relations with these “confiscated” enterprises. We will not allow any of their activities. And we ask for support of these decisions, inter alia, through the enhancement of the EU sanctions against Russia, which allowed this brutal violation of international law", - Petro Poroshenko emphasized.
The Head of State thanked the EU for the recent decision to continue sanctions caused by the illegal annexation of Crimea: “This is very important for us, this is a demonstration of support for Ukraine”.
At the same time, he emphasized the importance of compliance with the Minsk agreements - the plan, which provides for the ceasefire, withdrawal of Russian troops and heavy artillery, restoration of Ukrainian control over the uncontrolled part of the Ukraine-Russia border.
“Our common position is aimed to restore Ukrainian sovereignty on the territories that are currently under occupation", - the President said.
“Unfortunately, there are other scenarios elaborated not in Ukraine and not in the EU. They are aimed to cut these territories, close the border along the touch line and present these territories as a gift to the aggressor", - the Head of State noted.
