Federica Mogherini told Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko during her first visit to the war-torn country since her August appointment that Brussels intended to “walk hand-in-hand” with Kiev. “We discussed the way in which the European Union — keeping its unity, which has been there and will continue to be there — can support the implementation in full and on all points the Minsk agreement,” she said in reference to Ukraine’s shaky peace deal with Russian-backed rebels.
