President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko believes that the blockade by activists in Donbas territories, uncontrolled by Kyiv, is a very dangerous strategy and actions by them destroyed Ukraine in Donbas.
“It destroyed Ukraine in Donbas. It’s a very dangerous strategy and actions of blockade protesters were dangerous. We had to act decisively and efficiently,” the president said in an interview with Ukrainian television channels on March 15 night.
He expressed confidence that the scenario of the blockade was not written in Ukraine, since it is aimed at internal destabilization of the country.
