Ukraine supports NATO's intention to establish monitoring mission in Black Sea

The NATO presence in the Black Sea is a factor of de-escalation of tensions, so Ukraine welcomes NATO's intention to establish the naval and airborne monitoring missions in the region.

"We welcome the establishment of NATO's naval and airborne monitoring missions. We will be grateful for permanent and regular exchange of information with NATO to ensure a better joint assessment of the situation in the Black Sea and throughout the region. It is important that Ukraine is going to participate in NATO's Regional Airspace Security Programme," President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko said at a press conference following the meeting with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg in Brussels, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

Poroshenko also thanked the Secretary General of the Alliance for an effective response to Ukraine's request for the development of secure satellite communication systems. Significant progress has also been made in strengthening Ukraine's cyber security, which remains one of the priorities of bilateral cooperation with NATO, the President noted.

"I am looking forward to launch of a new project, which will provide for strengthening the cybersecurity of Ukrainian electoral infrastructure, in particular, the information system. I am grateful to the partners for the high level of understanding and cooperation in this issue," Poroshenko added.
