NATO Parliamentary Assembly President Paolo Alli has stressed that NATO member states defend themselves while supporting Ukraine.

He said this during the 95th Seminar of the NATO Parliamentary Assembly within the framework of the Rose-Roth Initiative in Kyiv, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"We know that we defend ourselves by supporting Ukraine... Our stand with regard to Ukraine is clear and strong. We categorically condemn further occupation of part of Ukraine by Russia and support the Euro-Atlantic Ukraine," Alli said.

At the same time, the NATO Parliamentary Assembly President calls on Ukraine to intensify its efforts in carrying out important reforms.

"In particular, with regard to the fight against corruption and oligarchic influence. Despite recent achievements, Ukraine needs to do much more," he said.
