Turchynov said the enemy does not stop shelling in the east of Ukraine even after another cease-fire agreement, which is an evidence of the fact that "Putin is not going to get away from occupied territories, and the Donbas war is a leverage upon Ukraine and Europe for him."

The parties discussed possible solutions to the problem of blocking the military and technical cooperation of Ukraine with partner countries, as well as the issue of the release of Ukrainian political prisoners illegally held by Russia. They also spoke of the aid by the Ukrainian World Congress with informing the partner countries of Ukraine and disproving fake publications about the country by the Russian propaganda.

In his turn, Cholii said the Ukrainian World Congress' priority is aiding the international community in its fight against the hybrid aggression against Ukraine.

He added the Congress will do its best to help implement the bill on the military and technical aid to Ukraine by the U.S., signed by President Trump.
