Head of the Office of the President of Ukraine Andriy Yermak met with NATO Assistant Secretary General David Cattler.
Andriy Yermak emphasized the importance of the visit of the NATO High Representative, which demonstrated NATO's strong political support for our country and its commitment to further deepen practical cooperation with Ukraine.
The Head of the Presidential Office informed the interlocutor about the situation on the frontline. The parties exchanged views on the military threats posed by Russia and its capabilities to continue using missiles and attack drones against Ukraine.
Andriy Yermak emphasized the need to further strengthen Ukraine's air defense with modern systems available to NATO members, in particular to protect against Russian missile attacks.
He also expressed hope that our country will receive armored vehicles, primarily battle tanks, and other weapons necessary for the liberation of the temporarily occupied territories from our partners as soon as possible.
The interlocutors discussed preparations for the NATO Summit in Vilnius in July this year.
"We hope that in Vilnius, the allies will be able to decide on the modalities and possible timeframes for Ukraine's further movement towards NATO membership," the Head of the Presidential Office noted.
In addition, Andriy Yermak emphasized the need to intensify the dialogue with NATO member states to ensure effective security guarantees for Ukraine after the war.
"Our country needs reliable international security guarantees that would make the repetition of Russian aggression impossible in the future," he emphasized.
