“Now the difficult time for Ukraine and, unfortunately, it lasts not the first week. I am glad that we managed to meet in Odesa, in a very important region of Ukraine. I thank the Chairman for this opportunity.

Aggression and threat to the integrity of Ukraine took place, but now we believe that the conflict reached the degree of de-escalation.
