Ukraine's president, Norwegian PM in favor of keeping Russia sanctions
Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko held a meeting with Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Norway Erna Solberg in Davos, where the parties discussed the situation in Donbas and Russia-occupied Crimea, along with the reform process in Ukraine.
"The head of state informed the prime minister on the situation in Donbas, in particular, Russian attempts and those of Moscow-controlled militants to escalate the security situation in the region, and also on the human rights violations in the Russia-occupied Crimea. Interlocutors emphasized the importance of retaining sanctions against Russia as an efficient mechanism to prompt it to fulfill Minsk agreements," reads the statement released by the press service of Ukraine's head of state on Thursday.
Ukrainian president reported on large-scale reforms in the country. The Norwegian prime minister noted efforts of the Ukrainian authorities and assured that Norway would continue to support Ukraine on its way of profound changes.
