The President of Ukraine opened the 11th Kyiv Security Forum

In his speech he noted that we were approaching a critical moment and were able to provide a very powerful Russian motivation for peace and our common and tough position on Russia already brought results. “If we continue to keep this line – we will return both Donbass and Crimea, while preserving the life of Ukrainian servicemen” emphasized the President. He also noted that during four years of Russia’s aggression against Ukraine “the world has witnessed unprecedented and incomprehensible crimes committed by the Kremlin for a normal person – both in the Donbass, and in the illegally annexed Crimea against the Crimean Tatars and against the Ukrainians”.
