He told this to journalists during a working trip to Kharkiv region.
“I have not had any negotiations with the newly elected President of Ukraine. I would like to say that I am a civilized person, I will act within the framework of current legislation and I think that at the present time when such a meeting takes place, I’m ready to report on the state of the Armed forces of Ukraine, about reforms, about tasks, about my vision for the future of the Armed forces of Ukraine”, – said Poltorak.
He added that, in his opinion, everyone should act within its powers – the newly elected President in the framework of its powers, the Minister of defence in the framework of their own.
The defense Minister stressed that they will fulfil their responsibilities, yet he trusts the President, the Verkhovna Rada and the Ukrainian people.
