Ukraine's President says tougher to secure Western support against Russia

News » Politics



It has become increasingly difficult for Ukraine to secure Western support in its fight against "Russian aggression" and a full-scale invasion from Russia cannot be ruled out, Ukraine's President Petro Poroshenko said on Tuesday.

Poroshenko said Europe's internal strength was being tested by external issues such as the migration crisis and militant attacks, and warned elections in 2017 could see political forces more willing to compromise with the Kremlin take power.

"Ukraine will continue to need strong international support in the fight against Russian aggression," Poroshenko said at the opening of the September parliament session.

"But securing this support is becoming increasingly difficult for our diplomats due to different objective and subjective factors."
