Ukraine crisis: Obama praises 'excellent' Poroshenko
18 September 2014 Last updated at 19:53 ET

President Barack Obama has given his support to Petro Poroshenko, describing himself as a "strong friend" to Ukraine's leader.

Mr Obama condemned what he called Russian aggression in eastern Ukraine.

He called for the withdrawal of Russian troops from Ukrainian territory and the closure of the border to arms.

But he stopped short of agreeing to Mr Poroshenko's request for US military assistance to his country to counter pro-Russian eastern separatists.

"Congratulations on the excellent work that you've done," said Mr Obama during a bilateral meeting in the Oval Office.

"You have a strong friend not only in me personally, but I think, as you saw in Congress today, you have strong bipartisan support here in the United States."

Mr Obama has said military support will only include non-lethal weapons.

Mr Poroshenko told the joint session of Congress in Washington that Ukrainian government forces needed more equipment - both lethal and non-lethal.

"Blankets, night-vision goggles are important, but one cannot win the war with blankets."

His impassioned plea for US support brought applause and several standing ovations.

Who knows what kind of agreements were made behind closed doors?

It was a really great speech. Here is a highlight. Also, a speech in Canadian parliament.

…………………………………………………………………….
Why the crisis in Ukraine? Russian war against Ukraine started in March ...

Three main objectives Rashysts: to prevent the entry of Ukraine into NATO, to achieve belonging Crimea to Russia de facto - through life support Crimea. Lifting of the blockade the Crimea and as well on European lines and achieve similar relative Transnistria.
Moscow will resort to military conflict escalation, if the process of negotiations will not hold it. The Kremlin did not pay attention to any "peace march".
--------------------------------------------------------------------
For new agreements in Minsk about the situation in eastern Ukraine - a continuation of the system of forced concessions from Kyiv.
These concessions are a direct result of military defeat Ukraine in Ilovojsk after Putin threw the aid separatists regular Russian army.
Is this plan a plan of EU agreed with the US? (no).

Ukraine has a ‘cease-fire in name only,’ top NATO commander says:

If Russia is waging war against Ukraine, why the EU not admit it(?)…
If Russia is terrorist country, why the EU goes to rostupky terrorists(?)…

Oleh, unfortunately the world revolves around the powers that are. When Ukraine signed the Budapest Memorandum on Security Assurances, it gave all its power away. Politically it was naive. Maybe President Kuchma forgot how Ukraine was screwed in the Yalta Agreement? How many times does history need to slap you in the face, before you get the message?

IMO Poroshenko is doing the best he can under the circumstances. He seems to be pragmatic, without complete capitulation. He needs to keep reminding America and Great Britain, that they are under great obligation, militarily and otherwise, to Ukraine. If they fail in this obligation, they are guaranteeing a very chaotic and uncertain nuclear world.

Please read: Ukrainian roots are being uprooted -

Hi, Hannia!

I agree with your conclusions, but I do not agree with the terminology that you continue to use. Because the crisis was and will be. A Moscow always uses terms that "crisis in Ukraine", that the "crisis is to blame the EU". I gave the reference defining the 'hybrid war' in Vilnius summit and in Wales summit.

Ц צ – “Φ”. Τ, ‘צ’, ‘’.
Oleg.
