WASHINGTON, March 31. /TASS/. Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko expressed hope that Western countries would join the Savchenko-Sentsov sanctions list against Russia.
Speaking on Wednesday in the U.S capital where he arrived for the U.S.-initiated Nuclear Security Summit, Poroshenko said a blacklist of individuals involved in the cases of Savchenko, Sentsov and Kolchenko had been published in Ukraine and also expressed hope that U.S. and European partners would join the initiative.
In his speech Poroshenko again accused Russia of non-implementation of the Minsk agreements and of weapons supplies to militias in Donbass. He called for extension of sanctions against Russia until Ukraine’s sovereignty was restored.
Also, Poroshenko said a new coalition will appear in Ukraine’s parliament Verkhovna Rada in the near future and then a candidate for the prime minister’s post will be nominated.
Poroshenko claimed that within next hours a new coalition would appear in the Ukrainian parliament and then a candidate for the prime minister’s post would be nominated.
Along with this, he said that the acutest crisis in Ukraine would be overcome already the next week as he was absolutely confident that the crisis was nearing the end.
