On October 31, in a letter to the leadership of the European External Action Service Ambassador of Ukraine to the EU Kostiantyn Yelisieiev urged the European Union to respond appropriately to the egregious crimes of the famous Russian actor Mikhail Porechenkov at the Ukrainian airport of Donetsk.
K.Yelisieiev emphasized that along with the direct threat to the lives of Ukrainian soldiers, who stand in defense of the State, Russian actor’s actions directly undermine the territorial integrity and sovereignty of Ukraine.
Such actions subject to the criteria of the European Union’s personal sanctions, including a ban on entry and freezing of assets.
He drew attention to the fact that during the firing the positions of Ukrainian military M.Porechenkov wore the helmet labeled "Press", indicating a cynical abuse and violation of international standards in the field of safety of journalists.
Kostiantyn Yelisieiev hopes that arrogant and unacceptable actions of the Russian actor will not go unnoticed by the EU and that there will be an adequately strong reaction.
