Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine Oleksandr Turchynov met with members of the Committee on National Security and Defense of the Seimas of the Republic of Lithuania.

During the meeting, the parties discussed cooperation in the defense and security sector and its reforming, as well as the situation in Donbas, the press service of the National Security and Defense Council reported.

The Committee members emphasized the importance of studying Ukraine's experience in countering hybrid aggression of the Russian Federation. In this context, the parties called for further coordination of actions to ensure security in Europe, stressing the importance of not only prolonging but also strengthening sanctions against Russia until all the occupied territories of Ukraine are liberated.

In turn, Turchynov reported on measures taken by Ukraine at the legislative level to repel Russia's armed aggression, in particular, the adoption in the first reading of the draft law on de-occupation of Donbas.

According to him, the draft law is strategically important for our country, since it establishes legal and organizational conditions for the restoration of Ukraine's territorial integrity, complete de-occupation of Donetsk and Luhansk regions, and blocks any attempts of the Russian Federation to continue aggression disguising under peacekeepers.
