NATO is the main hope of Ukraine in connection with Russian aggression in Crimea and Donbas.

Ukrainian President’s Commissioner for Crimean Tatar people Mustafa Dzhemilev said this in an interview with Voice of America.

"The North Atlantic Alliance is the main hope in connection with the aggression, demonstrated now by Russia. What can NATO do? It can do a lot, but, in my opinion, it does not show sufficient determination," Dzhemilev said.

"We do not consider military means as a solution to de-occupation of Crimea, because it will be a tragedy, first of all, for our people," Dzhemilev noted.

"However, NATO must demonstrate its determination to the aggressor country. Some steps are being made to strengthen the military presence in the Baltics, and I believe these steps are made in the right direction,” the Ukrainian President’s Commissioner for Crimean Tatar people noted.
