Poroshenko has compared Russia with the crocodile from the utterances of Churchill
The President compared Russia with the crocodile from the statements of former Prime Minister Winston Churchill.
President Petro Poroshenko said that Russia is the crocodile of the statements of the former British Prime Minister Winston Churchill.
During a speech at the Royal Institute of international Affairs Chatham House in London, he recalled the words of Churchill: “one hopes that if it is enough to feed the crocodile, the crocodile will eat him later”.
“There is one place where these words are particularly relevant is Ukraine, and the crocodile, of which many would like to feed, so he doesn’t eat them today is Russia. They hope that Russia will satisfy your appetite, it will not extend its influence further,” he said.
“But I want to convince them: Russia will not load up. She does not believe in democracy and human rights, she believes in dominance on the world and area of influence, she doesn’t play by the rules,” – said Poroshenko.
We will remind, on April 18-19, continues his official visit Poroshenko in the UK. There he, among other things, stated that the army of Ukraine is in eighth place in Europe and that the Kremlin is obsessed with the Imperial past.
