President Petro Poroshenko met with President of the European Council Donald Tusk in Brussels.
“I am extremely grateful to President Tusk for the absolutely clear, solid and consistent position of support for Ukraine’s European aspirations and sanctions against Russia as a consequence of Russia’s aggression against Ukraine,” the Head of State stressed.
The President noted all vectors of cooperation between Ukraine and the EU had been elaborated. The parties discussed the Eastern Partnership Summit and cooperation in the format of the European People’s Party.

The President drew attention to the draft document submitted for discussion by the European People’s Party. “It is also a strong message regarding support of Ukraine, condemning Russian aggression, supporting Ukraine on the path of reforms and European aspirations of our country,” the Head of State noted and thanked the EPP for such a position.
Petro Poroshenko stressed that he was fully satisfied with the results of the meeting with Donald Tusk. “By the way, taking advantage of the opportunity I would like to thank him both as President of the EU and as a Pole for a completely strategic vision of Ukrainian-Polish friendship. This is a responsible position of a responsible person,” the Head of State noted.
