"We are fighting against a real aggressorMr. Putin and the Kremlin regimewho violate the international law, who illegally grabbed territory of an independent country and who intimidates the world, and frankly speaking who didnt pay the price, not yet. Every aggressor is to pay the price", said Prime Minister of Ukraine Arseniy Yatsenyuk in an interview with an American media source during his working visit to Washington.

The Head of Government stressed that an ultimate goal of President Putin was "for Ukraine to become a failed state".

According to Arseniy Yatsenyuk, concerted actions of the E.U. and the U.S. are needed. And the best example of this concerted action is the joint statement of G7 leaders: They made it very clear that sanctions will be in place until Putin fully implements the Minsk deal".
