Poroshenko promises united Ukraine and no compromise on Crimea

KIEV (Reuters) - Ukraine's new president Petro Poroshenko said his country would never give up Crimea and would not compromise on its path towards closer ties with Europe, using his inaugural speech on Saturday to send a defiant message to Russia. The 48-year-old billionaire took the oath of office before parliament, buoyed by Western support but facing an immediate crisis in relations with Russia as a separatist uprising seethes in the east of his country. Russia annexed the Crimean peninsula in March, weeks after street protests ousted Poroshenko's pro-Moscow predecessor, in a move that has provoked the deepest crisis in relations with the West since the Cold War #United States #Technology #markets #Argentina #United Kingdom #Latin America #Ukraine #european #Free Speech
