The leader of the party “Fatherland” Yulia Tymoshenko called on European States to prevent the lifting of sanctions against Russia. About it reports “Interfax-Ukraine”.
According to her, Ukraine is today the only country in Europe whose territory is war. “The European community cannot close its eyes to the occupation of Donbas and annexation of Crimea. I urge you not to stop sanctions against Russia until full restoration of the territorial integrity of Ukraine”, — said Tymoshenko.
She believes that to stop the war the only possible “common European family”, and “in any case, not by surrender.” Tymoshenko has asked the European politicians to prevent imposition of the Ukraine of the decisions of the summit “channel four”, which can lead to further destruction of the country’s sovereignty.
In 2014, the results of the referendum into Russia included the Crimea. Ukraine and several other countries considered the annexation of the Peninsula illegal, but Moscow denies the accusations. In the same year, Ukraine, member States of the European Union and also the USA and other countries have imposed against Russia economic sanctions. First, they tied with the annexation of Crimea, and then — with the conflict in the Donbass. In response, Moscow imposed a ban on food imports from countries that supported sanctions. The West associates the abolition of measures with the implementation of the Minsk agreements — the complex of measures to stabilize the situation in the East of Ukraine.
