The NATO PA president visited Mariupol, Shyrokyne and Hnutove, talked to the military and civilians who live on both sides of the so-called line of demarcation and cross checkpoints.
At Mariupol City Council, she held a general meeting with representatives of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine, the military commanders of the Joint Forces Operation (JFO) and the heads of law enforcement agencies. They discussed mine safety issues, improvement of the conditions for crossing checkpoints and others.
