It is impossible to fulfill conditions set by Russia, – Ukraine’s PM

The unity of Ukrainian society is a major factor in Ukraine’s invincibility, emphasized Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal on air of an information telethon on the 1+1 TV channel.

The whole world is united in support of Ukraine. Dozens of calls and meetings with our international partners take place. The aggression of the enemy encounters unprecedented response from the entire world,” the Prime Minister said.

Currently, Ukraine has military, political and financial support from the United States, Europe, and most partner countries, Denys Shmyhal noted. In addition, negotiations are underway with the Group of Seven states to establish a Stability and Reconstruction Fund for Ukraine.

The fulfillment of the conditions voiced by the President of the Russian Federation to Ukraine contradicts the choice of Ukrainian society, Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal stated on the air of the ICTV channel.

For an independent sovereign Ukraine and for me, as the Prime Minister of our state, this is impossible,” Denys Shmyhal accentuated.
