Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine Oleksandr Turchynov held a meeting with President of the NATO Parliamentary Assembly Paolo Alli.

This has been reported by the press center of the National Security and Defense Council.

During the meeting, the interlocutors discussed the current situation in Ukraine developed as a result of the Crimea annexation and Russian aggression in the east of our country.

According to Turchynov, Ukrainian secret services are documenting intense activities of the Russian Federation in stepping up its military potential "primarily on the Western and Southern strategic directions".

"Analyzing these data we cannot exclude the escalation of military aggression against our country," Secretary of the NSDC of Ukraine said.

"Moreover, Russian-terrorist groups are blatantly neglecting the Minsk agreements and the recent cease-fire agreement. By continuing shellings of our positions using weapons prohibited by the Minsk agreements, they are trying to change the delimitation line by military means," Turchynov said.

Secretary of the NSDC of Ukraine emphasized that in this context it is essential to resume Ukraine's military-technical cooperation with its Western partners, "which was artificially blocked in 2014".

According to President of the NATO Parliamentary Assembly Paolo Alli, there can be no compromises on this issue: "NATO member states take a strong position on this issue. We do not put people's freedom at stake".

The President of the NATO Parliamentary Assembly noted that NATO member states supported reforms taking place in Ukraine and our state's aspiration to Euro-Atlantic integration.
