Poroshenko says global community has to do more to address 'aggression from Russia'

Ukrainian President speaks at the nuclear summit in Washington

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko says the global community has to do more to address "aggression from Russia." The Ukrainian leader also confirmed that he would meet with the Dutch prime minister on the sidelines of the nuclear summit in Washington, D.C.

Petro Poroshenko, Ukrainian President: "We have after all this, our efforts, the world is much more secure? Unfortunately, not. An example of Ukraine's is very well-explained and well-demonstrated. We have an agression against my country on the east by Russian Federation. We have an annexation of the Crimea and the necessity to develop the agreed decision. How we can solve this situation is also a topic on future consultations dedicated to the global security. And we think that the UN Security Council, United Nations, regional security coordination, organization can play a much higher role to keep the world more secured.

"Yes, I have a meeting with Mark Rutte. We have a full understanding and a full trust between Ukraine and Netherlands, between Ukrainian people and Dutch people, and between Ukrainian government and Dutch government. That was based on the sad experience during the investigation of the tragedy of the terroristic attack against the MH17 where Netherlands was the nation who suffered the most."
