In particular, the participants in the meeting discussed the possible strengthening of sanctions against Russia and mechanisms to counter the launch of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline project.
Shmyhal thanked the European Union for its consistent support of Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity. According to him, a sign of this support is the decision by the European Commission to grant Ukraine new emergency macro-financial assistance worth EUR 1.2 billion. He expressed hope that the European Parliament would also support this initiative.
"Your visit to Ukraine once again proves the European Union's commitment to supporting our country," Shmyhal said.
The European Parliament delegation included David McAllister, Chairman of the Committee on Foreign Affairs, Nathalie Loiseau, Chair of the Subcommittee on Security and Defense, as well as MEPs Viola von Cramon-Taubadel, Tonino Picula, Adam Beelan, Petras Austrevicius, Radoslaw Sikorski, Jaak Madison, Michael Gahler and Pietro Ducci.
