The head of state commented on statements of Zakharchenko.

Ukraine will resume sovereignty over the Donbas and the Crimea. This was stated by President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko at a press conference in Georgia on Tuesday, July 18.

“The project “new Russia” was buried. Ukraine will resume sovereignty over the Donbas and the Crimea”, – said the Ukrainian President.

Poroshenko stressed that the self-proclaimed head of the DND Alexander Zakharchenko is not a political figure.

“Zakharchenko is not a political figure, and a puppet, which broadcasts the Kremlin’s statement,” – said Poroshenko.

Earlier today, Zakharchenko said about the establishment of a new “state” of the Ukraine. The Ukrainian side in the Tripartite contact group on settlement of the situation in the Donbass at the meeting tomorrow in Minsk will seek to address this statement Zakharchenko.
