Kiev: Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said on Thursday he was "very disappointed" by France`s decision to go ahead with a deal to sell two warships to Russia, despite international misgivings about Moscow`s role in the east Ukraine conflict.

"It`s not a question of money, industry or jobs. It`s a question of values," Poroshenko said during a meeting with European parliament deputies. Russia stands accused by the West of arming separatists in Ukraine`s eastern industrial heartland.
