Ukraine, Moldova facing similar challenges, both will restore its territorial integrity – Poroshenko
President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko has said that Ukraine and Moldova are facing similar challenges, and they will be necessarily restored in their internationally recognized borders in the future.
"Unfortunately, our common region has become the arena of clash of two ideological concepts. The first of them is democratic values, human rights and move to the future. The second one is totalitarianism, dictatorship and return to the past," the president said in the press statement following the negotiations with Prime Minister of Moldova Pavel Filip.
According to him, it is hard to imagine what this fire would reach if it wasn’t for the fortitude and heroism of the Ukrainian warriors."
"A quarter of century ago Moldova faced similar challenges having lost part of its sovereign territory. Now we see persistent attempts to impose such formats of reintegration to Moldova and Ukraine that will allow making decisions fateful for the fate of our nations from outside," the president said.
Poroshenko said that these attempts are doomed to failure.
"Ukraine and Moldova must and will be restored within their sovereign and internationally recognized borders," the president said.
