Poroshenko says Ukraine will not give up Crimea

Published: 06.07.14, 11:50 / Israel News

KIEV - Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said in a combative inaugural speech on Saturday that Ukraine would not give up Crimea, the Black Sea peninsula that Russia annexed from it in March.


"Crimea was, is, and will be Ukrainian," Poroshenko said in an emotional address after his swearing-in. He was greeted with a standing ovation.


He stressed the unity of Ukraine, which is fighting a pro-Russian separatist uprising in the east, and said it would not become a federalised state as advocated by Moscow. (Reuters)
