Paris: President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko met with the Ukrainian community of France and honored the memory of Anne of Kyiv, Queen of France.

Poroshenko noted that if many years before, Ukraine was not the subject, but the object of politics, but now nothing is resolved with Ukraine without Ukraine.

"No one puts any demands on us, we are asked: how can you help," he said.

According to him, Ukraine first of all needs unity and solidarity.

"The whole world must now be with us in the conditions of Russian aggression. You together with us have the name aggression - aggression, Russia - the aggressor, and Anne of Kyiv – Anne of Kyiv. And even when the Russians wanted to steal our history from us, we will not allow this. The whole world will now know Anna as Anna of Kiev and a symbol of partnership between France and Ukraine, between Paris and Kiev, "Poroshenko stressed.

Anne of Kyiv is the middle daughter of the Grand Duke of Kyiv, Yaroslav I the Wise, and his second wife Ingigirda (Irina), the daughter of the King of Scotland and Sweden. Granddaughter of the mother of Olof III Schetkonung, the second wife of the French King Henry I Capet, Queen of France, the mother of the future King Philip I. In the history of this country, she remained as the great-grandmother of almost 30 French kings.

In the sources of Kievan Rus Anna is not mentioned at all. The life story is reconstructed solely on the basis of the news of the French medieval chronicles and documents.

An interview with the great-great-granddaughter of Anna of Kyiv by Princess Veronica Murat can be read in the material of Front News International "Princess Murat first came to Kyiv".

French President Emmanuel Macron at a joint press conference with Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said that in the next few hours it will be decided when the Normandy Four meets.

According to him, the leaders of the Normandy Quartet during their meeting should agree on a series of new conditions in order to come to concrete results to overcome the crisis in the Donbass.

President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko during the meeting with Macron said that the activation of the role of the OSCE, their 24-hour presence in the Donbass, will effectively implement the Minsk agreements.

Also, Macron said that France does not recognize Crimea as Russian and will continue to support Ukraine's sovereignty.
