President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskiy during a meeting in Kyiv with the Minister of Europe and Foreign Affairs of France, Catherine Colonny, said that he expects clear sanctions in the eighth package of sanctions against the aggression of the Russian Federation for the pseudo-referendums it is holding in the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine.
"Regarding the pseudo-referendums held by the Russian Federation at gunpoint. And the reaction to this should not be verbal. We expect clear sanctions both in the eighth package of sanctions against the aggression of the Russian Federation and separate signals - what will happen and what will happen if the Russian Federation recognizes these pseudo-referendums , as well as what NATO countries should do and show to the whole world that they guarantee the security of any state on the European continent," Zelenskiy said.
The head of state thanked Katrina Kolona for her visit to Ukraine.
"Thank you for the visit, for supporting our state and the territorial integrity of Ukraine. Specially for helping our army. Specially to Brigitte Macron (First Lady of France) for her humanitarian support. They met on the sidelines of the General Assembly with the First Lady of Ukraine," the president said.
