PM Shmyhal: Continued presence of NATO warships in Black Sea needed to support Ukraine

“The response to Russia’s aggressive actions should be a joint response from Ukraine, the EU and NATO. Ensuring the continued presence of Allied warships in the Black Sea would be a very strong message of support for Ukraine,” the Prime Minister stressed.

According to Shmyhal, the Kremlin is interested not only in destabilizing the situation in Ukraine, but also in destabilizing the EU and NATO countries’ security.


As reported, the Prime Minister of Ukraine together with the Heads of Government of Georgia and Moldova will hold a series of meetings with the leadership of the European Union in Brussels on November 30.
