‘Putin is weak when we are together’: Ex-Ukrainian president Poroshenko

Former Ukrainian president Petro Poroshenko granted an exclusive interview to FRANCE 24 from the Ukrainian capital Kyiv, just a few kilometers away from Russian troops.  Poroshenko, who was in power from 2014 to 2019, welcomed the “growing” Western support for his country, as well as the EU’s decision to provide some €450 million in weapons to the Ukrainian military.  He thanked EU leaders for their support, saying, “we are not afraid of Putin” and “Putin is weak when we are together.”
