“Today I had a meeting with Timmy Dooley and Billy Kelleher in the walls of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine. We continue our cooperation with the EU and its representatives. We talked about Ukraine, terror, missiles launched by the Russian Federation, cruelty, about those who are guilty of this, as well as responsibility for committed crimes. The Ukrainian side believes that the international community should urgently and decisively respond to Russian terrorism,” wrote the First Deputy Chief of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine.

According to Oleksandr Kornienko, Ukraine hopes for the acceleration of the comprehensive international isolation of the Russian Federation, the rapid implementation of all sanctions, and a significant increase in political, economic, financial, military-technical and humanitarian support for Ukraine.

“Ukraine, like no other, is interested in establishing peace and ending the unprovoked destructive war started by Russia. In order for peace to be truly sustainable, it must be based on clear criteria, in particular, the restoration of Ukraine’s territorial integrity within internationally recognized borders and the prevention of further escalation, which is possible only in the event of the destruction of the Kremlin’s war machine,” added Oleksandr Kornienko.

In addition, the First Deputy Chief of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine had an opportunity to personally congratulate the approval of the resolution of the European Parliament on the establishment of the Special Tribunal for the crime of aggression against Ukraine.

“It is important to reach an agreement on a mutually acceptable prosecution mechanism for the crime of Russian aggression in Ukraine as soon as possible,” said Oleksandr Kornienko.
