UNITED NATIONS, June 03. /ITAR-TASS/. Further military operations in Ukraine’s eastern regions will not help newly elected President Petr Poroshenko to ensure sovereignty of the country, Russia’s Permanent Representative at the United Nations Vitaly Churkin said on Tuesday, adding that hopes that the situation there might improve after his election had been in vain.
“Regrettably, the situation is only worsening - we see more force being employed,” he said, reminding that already after his election, Poroshenko said the military operation in the eastern regions would be enhanced.
“Of course, we hope that something else might follow his inauguration. If they continue this operation, it would be a very bad beginning of his presidential term and would only complicate his work as president if he really wants to ensure sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine and to unite the country. I would be a very bad beginning for him,” Churkin said.
