According to him, Ukraine is observing the Minsk agreements, unlike Russia, which continues to violate the ceasefire regime, continues to supply weapons to Donbas, and prevents the access of the OSCE observers, as well as refuses to release the hostages.
"And in addition to all this, Russia is currently making great efforts to portray Ukraine as the one, which violates the Minsk agreements," Poroshenko said.
He also thanked the Japanese leadership for its consistent support of Ukraine.
