 Ukraine to be never left alone with Russian aggression, Ukraine’s Foreign Minister Klimkin says

Foreign Minister of Ukraine Pavlo Klimkin says the discussion of Ukraine’s issue at G20 indicates country’s support by the international community, as well as guarantees that Ukraine will not be left alone with the Russian aggression.

As reported by Censor.NET, the minister told Interfax-Ukraine news agency.

"We have friends and partners who have proven their willingness to support Ukraine, including out of solidarity, by imposing political pressure and sanctions against Russia. We have held talks with them before G20 summit and have a common clear and firm position. Therefore, when Ukraine's issue is a major focus of the world leaders' interest at multilateral meetings - not just at G20, but at G7, within the EU, NATO, and the OSCE - it is, in fact, a guarantee that we will not be left alone with the Russian aggression," the minister said.

"They will not make decisions on us without us. Today we mark the second anniversary of the Minsk agreements. If someone wanted to cynically reach agreements with the Kremlin 'over our heads', it would have already happened," the diplomat expressed confidence.

Speaking about Ukraine's formal participation in the G20, Klimkin stressed that it depends on Ukraine alone: "I advise to return to this issue when we stop talking about our potential and start fulfilling it."
