President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko believes that the presence of NATO in the Black Sea is necessary to prevent the Russian troops from occupying the Black Sea and the Sea of Azov region, which happens now.

 “First, we need the NATO presence in the Black Sea to prevent Russian troops from occupying the Black Sea and the Sea of Azov region, which happens now. We need the ‘Sea of Azov’ package of sanctions. I think it is very important. When I met with President of Lithuania Dalia Grybauskaite in Kyiv, Lithuania endorsed a national package of sanctions over the act of aggression in the Black Sea near the Kerch Strait,” President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko said in an interview with Fox News, the press service of the Head of State reports.

We need unity and solidarity in this situation, Poroshenko is convinced.

"We need to enhance cooperation with NATO to protect peace, security, freedom and democracy in the region. We need a package of sanctions, we need to improve military and technical cooperation, including the supply of lethal weapons that will help us protect our country from a possible large ground campaign, which Russia can start any time,” the Head of State emphasized.
