MOSCOW, August 21. /TASS/. The brotherhood of Russians and Ukrainians cannot be annulled by statements of Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko, chairperson of State Duma’s Committee on Security and Fighting Corruption Irina Yarovaya said on Friday.
Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said earlier that Ukrainian "had no brotherly nations during the war." "There is one Ukrainian nation that looks toward Europe and the Russian nation that is in deep crisis," he said.
"Fortunately, the brotherhood of Russians and Ukrainians cannot be annulled by any statements made by such persons as Poroshenko," Yarovaya said adding that "it is a deep blood, spiritual and historical connection, and no one can change that."
"Poroshenko’s statement is low and cynically taints the memory about the deed of the older generation that defeated Nazism," she stressed.
