This new format of political interaction was established at the NATO Summit in Vilnius and provides for Ukraine’s participation on an equal footing with the Alliance member states. It is also a tool for bringing our country closer to NATO membership.

The meeting was convened at the initiative of President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky to hold urgent consultations regarding the security situation in the Black Sea after Russia suspended its participation in the Black Sea Grain Initiative.

Ukraine and NATO member states discussed the action plan for strengthening security in the Black Sea region. The Ukrainian side noted that after energy terror against our country, Russia resorted to food terror against the world. Ukraine called for a decisive response to the actions of the terrorist state.
