KIEV, September 28. /TASS/. The situation in Ukraine is important for global security, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said Sunday at a meeting with Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko in New York where events on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly are currently underway, the Ukrainian presidential press service said in a statement.
