 Since the Ceasefire Terrorists Killed 18 Soldiers - Poroshenko

Ukrainian soldiers continue to die from the actions of the terrorists in eastern Ukraine, despite the Ukrainian side declared a unilateral ceasefire.

Perto Poroshenko said this at the PACE session in Strasbourg on Thursday, Censor.NET reports, citing Interfax-Ukraina.

" As of today we have 174 captured hostages, nearly 150 dead, and more than 300 injured. After less than a week of ceasefire, 18 Ukrainian soldiers were killed, 27 were injured. The day before yesterday a 10 - month-old baby was killed by a grenade fired from a grenade launcher," the President said.

Once again he stressed that Ukraine is committed to peace, therefore, he presented his peace plan that aims to stop violence and provides amnesty for those who have not committed serious crimes and stabilizing the situation in the region.

"We need to make sure that internal processes are back in a civilized framework.. If we do it, we will restore not only peace, but also trust," Poroshenko said.


As it was reported earlier, Poroshenko calls "insufficient" Russia's support of the peace plan. Also he said that if terrorists reject the conditions of the peace plan, the Ukrainian state will make a very important decision.
