If each EU country will take patronage over a separate settlement in the Donbass, people will see the rehabilitation of roads, schools and kindergartens, just over the line of demarcation on the Ukrainian-controlled territories and this will contribute to the restoration of the territorial integrity of the country.
This was stated by President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko during a meeting with heads of foreign diplomatic institutions of Ukraine. The broadcast led the TV channel “112 Ukraine”.
“I would like to remind you about the initiative, where every European country can take patronage over the separate city, a village, a village in the Donbas. It will also be a striking symbol of humanitarian aid in restoring the territorial integrity of Ukraine,” – said Poroshenko.
He added that this would help to overcome the propaganda of the aggressor.
“The Ukrainians, who were on the occupied territory, where a terrible humanitarian catastrophe, will see that under the Ukrainian flag, just behind the line of collision built roads, schools, kindergartens, and creating new jobs, increasing the level of social protection. This will greatly help us to overcome the Russian propaganda”, – said the President.
