We were protected from requirements of the Russian Federation to return money which has been thrown in December, 2013 by Yanukovych who has put and for cameras, these means a cache to the trucks and has taken out from Ukraine. And we have proved that it it is unfair — to demand these payments from Ukraine" — TASS quotes Poroshenko.
