MOSCOW, June 08, /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s attitude to Ukrainian President Pyotr Poroshenko will depend on his concrete actions, Nikolai Patrushev, the secretary of the Russian Security Council, said on Sunday.
“We need to define our policy towards Ukraine’s new president. A lot will depend on his behavior and concrete actions,” Patrushev said in an interview with the Russia 24 television news channel.
“The first thing we would like him to do is to stop the bloodshed,” the Security Council secretary said.
“Actions when the army is used in full scale and the extermination of his own people should be stopped,” Patrushev stressed.
“We have heard from him (Poroshenko) that he will travel to the east soon and will quickly restore order there. But we have also heard that the Maidan will be restored in 24 hours,” Patrushev went on to say.
Ukraine’s new President Pyotr Poroshenko who was elected at the snap elections on May 25 and inaugurated on June 7 said addressing the people of southeast Ukraine that he was planning to visit the Donbas region soon.
