The lessons of the second world war give Ukraine the basis for the fight against the Russian annexation of Crimea and occupation of part of the Donbass, said the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko.

“Memories make us again and again zamylilsya on the causes of war and to draw the appropriate conclusions. Millions and millions of people around the world United by one goal – to prevent the recurrence of the tragedy. And only in Moscow, God will judge them, saying: “I repeat!”. For Ukraine, which is opposed to the Russian aggression, the conclusions from the lessons of the second world war and they are especially important – they give us the moral and legal basis for a just struggle against the annexation of Crimea and occupation of part of the Ukrainian Donbass”, – said P. Poroshenko during the action “First minute of peace” on Wednesday evening in Kiev.

P. Poroshenko believes the cynical allegations of “civil war” in Ukraine.

“And to say that we have “civil war” as cynical as, for example, to say that in the forties in Russia was an internal conflict, and Hitler only helped the Vlasov army or the Cossacks of Krasnov. This comparison is not original, borrowed from social networks”, – P. Poroshenko said.

The President thanked Ukrainian soldiers for courage in repelling the Russian aggression and underlined that “the new head of state to defend the country will have sufficient military capabilities to take the guesswork out of protecting the country against the encroachments of an aggressive neighbor”.
