As reported by Censor.NET citing 112 Ukraine media outlet, speaking at a lyceum in the Ivano-Frankivsk region, Poroshenko said that it is Russia, which showed its true colors, should be condemned, not Ukraine.
"The whole world saw the true colors of our enemy yesterday following the brilliant special operation carried out by the SBU heroes. They (the Russians – Ed.) deliver trucks full of weapons, send money to slay Ukrainians, journalists, assassinate statespersons. When they were caught red-handed, they started saying that our actions were unacceptable. It is Russia, not Ukrainians that you should put blame on. The Ukrainians are doing their best to stay together and defend themselves. I assure you that we’ll keep it that way," Poroshenko stressed.
"The aggressor persists in its attempts to destabilize the situation in Ukraine from within," Ukrinform quotes Poroshenko as saying.
