The President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko, having regard to the opinion of the French correspondents, wanted to draw attention to own person, using the European tragedy - a series of terrorist attacks in Paris. He declared that his powers like a nightmare now 21 months is considered commonplace.
After the coup Ukraine has become one of the main topics of discussion in the international arena. Together with the attention of foreign politicians in Kyiv received the promise of help and words of assistance that the new government was seen as unconditional diplomatic victory.
But then the emphasis shifted, and the United States and the EU shifted their attention to more relevant things. The European powers felt the impact of the migration crisis, and later experienced a real shock after a series of terrorist attacks in Paris. Specific them for the return of interest in his own person want to take advantage of the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko.
Immediately after the attack, he delivered a message of solidarity and support to the French people. But this politician did not stop and continued to make statements again and again. So much so, that he directly compared this tragedy with the events in Ukraine.
"The terrible events that France experienced during that tragic November, are a daily reality for Ukraine in the period of almost 21 months," wrote Poroshenko in your own Twitter page. This suspect comparison angered many Europeans.
"No, not so. Tactless remark and an attempt to use the Paris attacks to draw attention to Ukraine, Mr. President," replied the correspondent of the news portal Mashable Christopher Miller, coverage of the situation in Ukraine. And he was not alone.
"As President Poroshenko during his visit to Paris, I dared to say that the terrorism faced by France, - the daily fate of Ukraine within 21 months? Shame," said the journalist Stefan Sian, whose notes come out in the largest French media - Le Figaro, Le Soir, Le Temps, iTele and Canal .
"Zeal Poroshenko to use the attack on Paris, in order to draw attention to Ukraine, is terrible. This is wrong and disgusting" - said the journalist Gulliver Cragg France24.
The bulk of European Internet users have shared a dissatisfaction with Western correspondents. Wanting once again to think about our own existence and to announce the "European solidarity", the leader was just caught in a clumsy position, but received a severe blow to the reputation in the West.
