 Re-entry of occupied Donbas started, Crimea is next, Poroshenko says

Ukraine has launched the process of return of temporarily occupied territories: the Donbas process will be followed by similar steps in regards to Russia-occupied Crimea.

As reported by Censor.NET citing LIGABusinessInform, this was announced by President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko in an interview to Ukrainian TV channels.

"There has been not a single shot in the Donbas over the past three days. This gives us hope for a very important thing: the following steps will be return of Ukraine to the Donbas. Without the cease-fire, it is not possible to give back sovereignty to the Donbas. It is not possible without elections held under Ukrainian legislation, without political settlement, troops withdrawal and so on," the president said.

Poroshenko also added that after Donbas return process has started, similar steps will follow in regards to the occupied Crimea.

"Crimea is the next stage of our activities," Poroshenko said.
