During the negotiations in video format, the President told the head of the government of Montenegro about air attacks by Russia on the territory of Ukraine, which once again proved that the Russian military-political leadership has no intention of stopping its aggressive actions.

The President called on the Parliament of Montenegro to join the parliaments of other countries in recognizing Russia as a sponsor of terrorism.

The head of state also expressed gratitude to Montenegro for strong political support and significant practical assistance provided to Ukraine. He highly appreciated the consistent accession of Montenegro to all the sanctions packages, adopted by the European Union against the Russian Federation.

Volodymyr Zelenskyy separately thanked Montenegro for the military-technical assistance provided to Ukraine, which is extremely important for strengthening Ukraine’s defense capabilities.

“The interlocutors discussed in detail the issue of European integration of Ukraine and Montenegro as candidate countries for accession. The President and the Prime Minister emphasized the need for practical cooperation in the context of Ukraine’s preparation for the next stage – the start of pre-accession negotiations,” said the press service of Ukraine’s President.

During the conversation, special attention was paid to Ukraine’s implementation of the Euro-Atlantic integration strategy. Volodymyr Zelenskyy emphasized that Ukraine continued the consistent implementation of the strategic course for Euro-Atlantic integration and would count on the use of the important experience of Montenegro, which has already made its way to membership in the Alliance.

“Following the negotiations, the leaders signed the Joint Declaration, which defines the priority areas of cooperation between Ukraine and Montenegro within the strategic course of our country to acquire full membership in the North Atlantic Treaty Organization,” concluded the press service of Ukraine’s President.
