Poroshenko urged the EU also properly respond to an act of Russian aggression in the sea of Azov.

President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko met with Federal Chancellor of Germany Angela Merkel on the eve of the meeting of the European Council. About it reports a press-service of the Ukrainian President on Thursday, December 13.

As noted, Poroshenko thanked Merkel for efforts by Germany to end the blockade by Russia of the Azov sea and the Kerch Strait. The President of Ukraine thanked for the attention that Merkel attaches to the issue of release of Ukrainian sailors and ensuring freedom of navigation in the region.

In addition, Poroshenko urged the EU also properly respond to an act of Russian aggression in the sea of Azov and the Kerch Strait and targeted interference with the freedom of navigation by introducing the so-called “Azov package of sanctions”.

Earlier, Merkel said that Berlin would support the extension of anti-Russian sanctions at the EU summit, which will take place this week.
