“Ukraine's president has laid the blame for the murder of three policemen during a right wing demonstration on Monday firmly at the doors of the Kremlin, accusing Russia of extending its 'campaign of destabilization", the channel posted on its website following an interview with Poroshenko.
And this is what President Poshenko actually told the reporter:
“We understand that aggressor [apparently Russia] want to have the destabilization scenario, using the far right groups. But me, as Ukrainian president and Ukrainian government do not allow it.”
He even specified that he “does not feel vulnerable and endangered”, even though his position might be the most difficult among “all the presidents of the world”.
However Poroshenko did not miss his chance to accuse Russia of aggression.
He tried to explain why he considered Russia so aggressive.
“The main reason for Russia to make an aggression against Ukraine is that they want to prohibit Ukraine to go to Europe. Russia and Russian leadership unfortunately take the right on himself that they will decide if Ukraine has a right to be a European or not. We do not allow that. We are not Russia.”
In his interview with the Russian channel RT, he suggtested that the Ukrainian authorities were trying to show the West how hard it is for Poroshenko to implement the Minsk accords, as people would take to streets to demonstrate violently against a minor amendment to the constitution.
