Poroshenko's presence in Milan happens at the invitation of Italian Prime Minister, Matteo Renzi, the host of the Summit, and has the support of the "heavyweights" of the European Union. Angela Merkel, François Hollande and David Cameron should, moreover, also check presence and mediate the meeting between Russian and Ukrainian leaders.

On the table, everything indicates, will be the Minsk agreement, whose principles have not been duly respected, and also the large debt from Kiev to Moscow for gas, which led to the disruption of supply in June and whose restoration will also be negotiated between the two Presidents. Poroshenko, this time, expect more action and less talk of Putin.

"The main issue is peace with the application of the Protocol and memorandum agreed in Minsk. We hope the cease-fire, the withdrawal of troops, elections and respect for the sovereignty of Ukraine throughout the territory. But also solve the energy problem, "anticipated the Ukrainian President.

The 10 edition of the ASEM brings together some of the most important rulers of Europe and Asia. But it is also because of this sensitive meeting between Putin and Poroshenko, on the sidelines of the Summit that the security is very tight in Milan.
