The fifth President of Ukraine, National Deputy of Ukraine, European Solidarity Faction, Petro Poroshenko has arrived in Ukraine. He told reporters that security forces tried to prevent him from entering the country at the Kyiv airport.

“For about 15 minutes, law enforcement officers, some of whom were dressed as border guards, tried to prevent me from entering Ukraine. They took away my passport. They explained that they had to confirm my identity as they had great doubts that I was Poroshenko," ex-president said.

According to him, this is pressure on the opposition and discrediting Ukraine in the face of the threat of Russian invasion.

"They did not focus all their efforts on defending the state and counteracting the aggressor. They focused all their efforts on the fight against the opposition (…),” Poroshenko said.
