Ukraine’s strategy against Russian aggression must be based on active defense – Poroshenko

President Petro Poroshenko has stated that the strategy of Ukraine against the military aggression of the Russian Federation must be based on the rigid and active defense.

"The strategy of our further counteraction to the Russian aggression must be based on the systemic and integrated response to the threats, in particular, through the rigid and active defense, which makes aggressive actions of the enemy pointless. The state's defense potential must be increased,” he said at the opening of the operational-strategic meeting with the leadership of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, an Ukrinform correspondent reported.

According to the president, Ukraine also needs to introduce international monitoring in the areas of the Black Sea and the Sea of Azov.

"It is important to establish and maintain cooperation with partners on all international platforms and to coordinate strategic communications. Also, international monitoring tools to control security situation must be introduced, especially in the areas of the Black and Azov Seas," Poroshenko said.
