poroshenkoPrime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk will keep his position. This was stated today at the press-conference, by the candidate of presidential elections in Ukraine – Petro Poroshenko.

According to him, the priority of Ukraine’s foreign policy will be European integration, whereas that of domestic policy will be the fight against corruption, establishing an independent judiciary, solving the “Crimean question”.

Poroshenko has promised an initiation of dialogue to the peaceful citizens of Donbas. At the same time he promises amnesty to those who haven’t resorted to taking up the arms or committing crimes. ATO must continue, however, in a different format.

According to Poroshenko, the meeting between him and Putin might take place in mid-June already. The candidate has promised that in case of victory he is ready to sell all of his business assets, except “TV Channel 5”.
