Ukraine-NATO cooperation must strengthen given current situation on battlefield, in rear - economy ministry

Ukraine needs even more intensive cooperation with NATO and hopes that the existing support mechanisms will expand.

This was emphasized by the First Deputy Minister of Economy of Ukraine, Denys Kudin, who spoke at a meeting of the Economy and Security Committee of the NATO Parliamentary Assembly, according to Ukrinform,

"Ukraine is grateful to NATO for expanding the existing mechanisms of cooperation, first of all, within the framework of the Comprehensive Assistance Package. It includes non-lethal international technical aid, services, and staff training. We especially appreciate the Alliance's contribution to treating severely wounded Ukrainian soldiers abroad. However, the situation at the front and in the rear requires even more intensive cooperation between Ukraine and NATO," Kudin said.

According to the Ministry of Economy, the NATO Parliamentary Assembly's Economic and Security Committee discussed the macroeconomic situation in Ukraine, wartime economic policy, the macroeconomic forecast, the reconstruction and development plan, and cooperation between Ukraine and the Alliance.
