This was emphasised on Thursday, 4 April, by Secretary of the National Security and Defence Council of Ukraine Oleksandr Lytvynenko during a meeting with a delegation from the Geneva Centre for Humanitarian Dialogue (HD Centre).

The delegation was represented by retired U.S. Army General and former Commander of U.S. Africa Command David Rodriguez, Director of the Eurasia Region at the HD Centre David Gorman, former Senior Director for Russian and Central Asian Affairs at the U.S. National Security Council Eric Green, and Ukraine Research Fellow at the HD Centre Sophia Pugsley.

During the meeting, the parties touched a wide range of international issues, the current military and political situation in Ukraine, the signing of security agreements, Ukraine’s prospects for joining the EU and NATO, and russia’s plans and intentions in the ongoing aggressive war.

And Ukraine’s victory means ensuring peace for at least the next two generations”, – said the NSDC Secretary, discussing Ukraine’s goals in the war.

The parties also touched upon the internal problems of the russian federation. In particular, the future of russia.
