That’s according to the Office press service, Ukrinform reports.
“Andriy Yermak emphasized the importance of the visit of the NATO High Representative, which demonstrated NATO's strong political support for our country and its commitment to further deepen practical cooperation with Ukraine,” the report reads.
The chief of the Presidential Office briefed the interlocutor on the frontline developments and exchanged with Cattler the views on the military threats posed by Russia and its capabilities to continue launching missiles and drones at Ukraine.
Yermak emphasized the need to further strengthen Ukraine's air defenses with modern capabilities available to NATO allies to defend the Ukrainian sky from Russian strikes.
He also expressed hope that Ukraine would receive from our partners as soon as possible more armored vehicles, primarily main battle tanks, and other weapons needed to liberate the temporarily occupied territories.
The interlocutors discussed preparations for the NATO Summit in Vilnius in July this year.
"We hope that in Vilnius, the allies will be able to decide on the modalities and possible timeframes for Ukraine's further movement towards NATO membership," Yermak noted.
Also, the chief of the President’s Office stressed the need to intensify the dialogue with NATO member states to ensure effective security guarantees for Ukraine in the post-war period.
"Our country needs reliable international security guarantees that would make the repetition of Russian aggression impossible in the future," he emphasized.
