Secretary of the NSDC of Ukraine Oleksiy Danilov met with heads of diplomatic missions of EU member states accredited in Ukraine
Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine Oleksiy Danilov met with heads of diplomatic missions of EU member states accredited in Ukraine on their initiative.
During the meeting, the parties discussed the current security situation in the region, in particular, in the context of Russia’s escalating hybrid aggression in the East of Ukraine.
Mr. Danilov emphasized that Ukraine seeks to resolve the conflict in the East of our state primarily through political and diplomatic means. “Ukraine currently has no plan to liberate the temporarily occupied territories by military means, our task is to resolve the conflict exclusively through political and diplomatic means, - he said. - Everything else is purely an information war of the Russian Federation, which they are waging not only on our territory but also all over Europe”.
In this context, according to him, the recently established Center for Countering Disinformation under the NSDC of Ukraine is aimed to combat hostile disinformation and propaganda.
The NSDC Secretary also informed the ambassadors of the EU member states about the working visit of President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy the frontline positions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions.
“We will not give up our land”, - Mr. Danilov said stressing that Ukrainian servicemen on the frontline are ready for any aggravation of the situation, and Ukraine continues to be an “outpost for the whole Europe”.
Mr. Danilov also expressed gratitude to European diplomats for the support of our state emphasizing that “it will be difficult for us to counter the aggressor without the help of our true partners”, but Ukraine is ready to give a decent response to the threats that arise near its border.
