"Russia builds an empire that cannot exist without Ukraine while Ukrainians cannot imagine life without freedom. Russia wants to establish its colony in the Donbas, legitimize its occupation authorities in the Donbas and Crimea. We will never let this happen! Sanctions against the Russian Federation must remain in place until the end of Crimea and Donbas occupation. Ukraine will make no concessions and our partners’ stance on this issue should be consolidated. The Ukrainian Unity Day is the milestone in our history. Hopefully reunification with Crimea will soon be another public holiday for the Ukrainian and Crimean Tatar brothers and sisters!" Klimkin said.
