Belarus president will pay his fifth official visit to Kyiv over the past three years.

The battles in Donets Basin are the beginning of Russian occupation, he believes.

The Ukraine president comments on reports that Belarus and Armenia are blocking the final declaration of the Riga summit over the 'Crimea clause.'

The Presidents of Armenia, Azerbaijan, Ukraine and Moldova and the Georgian PM will attend the summit. It is not clear who will represent Belarus.

Poroshenko has commemorated victims of political repressions at Bykovnyanske Cemetery in Kiev.

The Ukrainian President announced it in an interview with the French TV channel iTele.

But the Russian President refused, Forbes reports.

Sanctions need to be enhanced due to the violation of Minsk agreements, the Ukrainian President said.
