The President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko showed his appreciation to the Italian MPs who have not accepted the offer of some colleagues to lift the sanctions against the Russian Federation, according to the President’s Facebook page.

“I deeply appreciate that the Italian MPs have rejected the offer of individual parties to lift sanctions against Russia! Instead, the Italian Parliament adopted a resolution in support of Ukraine, which calls for full implementation of the Minsk agreements,” the President said.

In addition Poroshenko expressed special gratitude to everyone who is trying to create a powerful pro-Ukrainian coalition in the world.
