The presidential press service announced this in a statement following President Poroshenko's interview to Sky News channel during his visit to the United Kingdom, Ukrainian News Agency reports.

"Someone is trying to call this a frozen conflict. I emphasize that it is not frozen. It is a hot Russian aggression against my country," he said.

President Poroshenko noted that Ukraine has lost 69 servicemen and over 420 have been wounded since January 1, 2017.

"Is it a frozen conflict? It is a true hot war. It is a real aggression," he said.

President Poroshenko emphasized that there are over 700 Russian tanks, over 1250 artillery systems and over 300 multiple launch rocket systems in the occupied Ukrainian territory.

The President says pressure on Russia must continue to stop murder of Ukrainians.

President Poroshenko emphasized that Russia wages a "hybrid war" against other countries that includes the elements of cyber attacks, funding of populists and anti-government movements aimed to destabilize the internal situation.

As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, during his visit to the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko discussed with UK Minister of State for the Armed Forces Mike Penning questions of consolidation of military cooperation for resisting the Russian aggression.
