President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko sent a written message to Emmanuel Macron and congratulated him on having been elected President of France.

“Ukraine has been enthusiastically watching your brilliant campaign,” the Head of State said.

“The choice of French people is a vivid evidence of victory of the program of a progressive Europe of freedom over an alternative Europe of nationalism,” the message reads.

The President assured the French leader that Ukraine will always be a reliable partner of France on that track.

Petro Poroshenko expressed special gratitude to Emmanuel Macron for his personal uncompromising support for Ukraine in terms of ongoing Russian aggression. “Your position in the course of the election campaign gives confidence that with your victory Ukraine has gained a reliable ally in the Normandy format and in its efforts to restore sovereignty and territorial integrity,” the message reads.

The Head of State expressed hope for an efficient facilitation of France in the implementation of Ukraine’s European aspirations.

Petro Poroshenko invited the newly elected President of France to make a visit to Ukraine at his convenience.
