President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko made a speech at a meeting of the Verkhovna Rada and reiterated the number of citizens affected by the Russian aggression in the country’s occupied east.
On April 14, Ukrainian head of state Petro Poroshenko addressed the deputies of the Verkhovna Rada.
Ukrainian leader has particularly focused on the troubles of the Ukrainian civilians, who have been held by terrorists and Russian curators in the Donbas as hostages.
"Under the guise of protection of the rights of Russian-speaking population in Ukraine, Moscow has committed real genocide in the areas of Ukrainian Donbas, where the majority of Russian-speaking citizens of Ukraine live. At first, it turned their lives into a fiery hell, and then created a powerless reservation ruled by criminals and murderers," he stressed.
Furthermore, the head of the state has reiterated a terrifyingly huge number of people who died during Russia’s aggressive invasion in the Donbas.
"Russian aggression’s taken lives of thousands and thousands of Ukrainian citizens. Tens of thousands of Ukrainians were left homeless. Hundreds of thousands of people were forced to leave their homes. The phrase “Russian spring” will appear in all the Ukrainian-Russian dictionaries as a synonym for death and ruin," Poroshenko said.
Earlier, Russian politician and writer Limonov has presented a plan to capture five Ukrainian regions and Kazakhstan. He has offered his own idea of the "perfect Russia", which, in his opinion, should include Kazakhstan and other five regions of Ukraine.
