Poroshenko urged to stop talking about non-Ukrainian Crimea

The President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko, speaking in Parliament with the next annual message, said that Crimea was and is Ukrainian. According to the Ukrainian leader, no other conversations can not be. Meanwhile, earlier similar statement was made by Russian President Vladimir Putin, who considered that the question of territorial belonging of Crimea is closed.

His statement in the Verkhovna Rada Pyotr Poroshenko actually responded to the words of the former Ukrainian President Leonid Kuchma and President of Russia Vladimir Putin.

Recall that Kuchma recently stated that the Crimea has already entered the orbit of the Russian Federal system and, therefore, “actually” become part of Russia. And on Saturday 3 September the President of Russia Vladimir Putin said that the question of territorial belonging of the Crimea “historically closed”. Then the Russian leader added that the return to the former system does not exist at all.

Now Petro Poroshenko says members of Parliament: “Crimea is that Crimea was and is Ukrainian Crimea. And no other calls will not.” Poroshenko added that Putin’s statement said “it is nonsense”, as the issue of Crimea was really closed in 1954 and in 1991.

Poroshenko also urged to enter against Russia additional sanctions for violations of the rights of the Crimean Tatar people, reports “MK”in Crimea.
