The delegation also included Graham Brookie, Vice President of the Atlantic Council, John Herbst, Director of the Atlantic Council's Eurasia Center and former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine, and Myroslava Luzina, Atlantic Council Representative in Ukraine.

During the meeting, the parties discussed a wide range of issues of Ukrainian-American cooperation and exchanged views on the security situation in the world and the region.

The NSDC Secretary emphasized that after winning the war, "we have a historic chance to build a new state." "We will definitely win the war, and we must also, together with our partners, not lose in peace," he said. "Development and justice are the cornerstones of Ukraine's deep post-war transformation," Mr. Danilov said. - "Ukraine has proved that it is committed to democratic development, and freedom is the main need of our people.

According to Oleksiy Danilov, "the struggle for freedom is not limited by time," and Ukraine's demands to end the war remain unchanged. "Any hybrid surrogates are only a delay in time for russia's repeated encroachments on our territories," he said, emphasizing the importance of effective security guarantees for Ukraine, including joining NATO.

The parties paid special attention to the issue of countering disinformation and studying the threat of digital authoritarianism, and outlined prospects for practical cooperation in this area.

In his turn, Mr. Kempe emphasized that the "framework for the global future" that his think tank is working on "needs to be formed together with Ukraine." The American side also assured that it would continue to contribute to ensuring comprehensive U.S. support for Ukraine and the realization of our country's Euro-Atlantic aspirations.
