Without Ukraine there can be no global security and security in Europe - President in Munich

“Without Ukraine there can be no global security and security in Europe,” President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko told the media representatives during the Munich Security Conference.

The Head of State noted in particular that German Chancellor Angela Merkel during the speech at the conference had also spoken about the situation in Ukraine. "Today you saw that in the speech of the Chancellor of Germany and at the bilateral meeting (with Angela Merkel - ed.), we have discussed all the issues of our cooperation from the support of reforms to the decisive efforts to protect Ukraine's positions," he said.

According to him, cooperation was discussed in the issues of countering the aggression of the Russian Federation in the Kerch Strait, liberation of Ukrainian seamen, provision of free navigation, defense expenditures and economic development.

Petro Poroshenko thanked the American and European partners for a clear and consistent support of Ukraine.
