The strengthening of the presence of NATO in the Black Sea can restrain the aggression of the Russian Federation. Ivanna Klympush-Tsintsadze, the Vice Prime Minister of Ukraine stated this during the meeting with Fiona Hill, the Special Assistant to the President and Senior Director for European and Russian Affairs, as the Government Portal reports.
“The leadership of the USA in strengthening the presence of NATO military ships in the Black Sea is extremely important. This is the only way, which can help restrain the Russian aggression”, the Vice Prime Minister outlined.
Klympush-Tsintsadze stressed the necessity of the immediate renewal of the NATO-Ukraine Commission format at the level of ministers, which is being blocked by Hungary at the moment.
Earlier, The President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko claimed the necessity of increasing the presence of the NATO military ships in the Black Sea due to the Russian aggression.
According to Poroshenko, the Russian Federation uses Crimea for deploying missiles there, what creates an extremely dangerous situation and destabilizes the region.
The President does not rule out the opportunity of further aggression by the Russian forces in the Black Sea.
