KIEV, September 03. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said on Wednesday he is hopeful that the tripartite Contract Group would start talks on the peaceful settlement in Ukrainian south-eastern regions.
“I expect the peace process to be finally started in Minsk on Friday,” Poroshenko said. He expressed hope that real steps would be taken to ensure peace in south-eastern Ukraine.
“The world knows that Ukraine is a country that sticks to its commitments and observes international law. Today Ukraine is the object of aggression from the neighboring state,” Poroshenko said.
“The priority task is to ensure peace. Today I’ve talked with President Putin at 5am due to the time difference to discuss ways to stop the terrible processes. It is quite true that people should stop dying,” he said.
All citizens in Ukraine want peace. “The Ukrainian people stand for peace and politicians want to play war. But I want to say I am not going to do this. We should fight for peace together,” Poroshenko said.
