Poroshenko told Pence about the deterioration of the situation in the Donbass, in particular, Russia’s violation of the ceasefire.

The President also expressed support for the actions of the United States to prevent further war crimes of the Bashar Assad regime against civilians in Syria.

The vice-president in turn noted that the US fully supports Ukraine in its struggle to restore sovereignty and territorial integrity.

He thanked Ukraine for its solidarity with the United States after the gas attack in Idlib.

The interlocutors also coordinated the schedules of bilateral contacts at the highest level.

As reported, the US armed forces released 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles on Syrian government targets in response to a chemical attack in the province of Idlib, the victim of which were dozens of people.

The Syrian command officially declared six dead as a result of a missile strike and of “significant material losses.”

A number of European states, in particular, Britain, France and Germany supported the actions of the United States.

Russia called the missile attack “an act of aggression” and stated that it suspends the Memorandum with the United States on the prevention of incidents and the safety of aviation during operations in Syria.
