President Poroshenko stresses that Ukraine needs support of U.S. to fulfill Minsk agreements

For the Minsk agreements to be fulfilled by all parties of the conflict, Ukraine needs support of the United States.

Ukraine is doing everything possible to fulfill the Minsk agreements, but in order to ensure their implementation by all parties, it needs the support of the United States, Joinfo.ua reports with reference to the statement by President Petro Poroshenko at a meeting with U.S. Senator Rob Portman in Kyiv.

According to the press service, the president stressed that to ensure "the stability of the peace process" it is necessary to introduce an international peacekeeping mission.

U.S. Senator has the similar opinion and favors deeper U.S. involvement in ensuring the implementation of the Minsk agreements. In particular, Rob Portman said that the U.S. administration should take measures not only regarding implementation of training programs for the military, but also regarding enhancing the defense capability of the Ukrainian army.

Senator also stressed the importance of further financial support of the reforms in Ukraine.
