The President also noted that during his meetings with international leaders he declares that the war in Donbas poses a threat not only to Ukraine but also to the security and stability of all countries in Europe and around the world.
“Our partners stand in full solidarity with me on this issue. Therefore, we have united to overcome existing challenges and find mechanisms for an appropriate response to them,” Zelensky said.
According to the President, one of such mechanisms is Ukraine's integration into NATO.
