The Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko claimed after a meeting with the German Chancellor Angela Merkel that a threat of open war with Russia is higher than it was last year.
Poroshenko explained in his interview to the Bild tabloid that the Russian authorities kept flouting the Minsk Agreement. He also accused Moscow of contingent build-up in the territory of Ukraine.
Poroshenko noted that Russia continues to build new bases on the border and constantly carries out exercises. 'Russia invests a lot into preparations for war and we get no explanations of it,' he said.
The Ukrainian President added that in order to defend the country, weapon deliveries from Germany should be organized, as it's the case of the European security.
