Oleksiy Danilov: There should be a breakthrough at the NATO Summit in Vilnius when it comes to values, justice and humanity
Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine Oleksiy Danilov took part in the international conference "Ukraine and NATO on the eve of the Vilnius Summit: from support through victory to membership", held on June 27 in Kyiv.
In his speech during the panel discussion on security guarantees that Ukraine can receive during the war with russia, Oleksiy Danilov emphasized that when NATO was created, "democratic values were primary" and the Alliance was formed to protect them. "Now, in the 21st century, we are discussing the need to increase the production of weapons to kill people," he said, adding that "no one wants to think about how this happened."
Addressing the issue of the so-called "prygozhyn rebellion," the NSDC Secretary noted that the collapse of the USSR in 1991 was also a surprise for many Western countries. "What do we see today? On Friday, events began to take place that showed that there is no russia as a state," he said. - "There is a completely uncontrolled territory over which there is no government, no president putin. "This is the beginning of the end," Oleksiy Danilov said, adding that it is up to the world to determine what that end will be.
He emphasized that the issue of Ukraine's victory in the aggressive war unleashed by russia is "a matter of natural fragmentation of russia", as it is "the last colonial country in the world", and in its current form "will pose a threat to any of its neighbors and not only".
The NSDC Secretary expressed his belief that the NATO summit in Vilnius in July this year should bring our country effective security guarantees. "I am more than sure that there should be a breakthrough if we are talking about values, justice, humanity - in relation to our people, our children," he said.
In this context, Mr. Danilov emphasized that Ukraine has proved that "there is no need to be afraid of anyone, one must be dignified and defend the truth" by repelling russian armed aggression. "Now we are on the side of truth, and we need help to get justice as soon as possible," he said.
