A.Parubiy meets AFPC delegation

( Information Department of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Secretariat )

"Ukraine's key ally is the United States, which most understands the magnitude and global nature of the Russian threat," -- Andriy Parubiy, the Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine

The Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Andriy Parubiy met with a delegation of the American Council on Foreign Policy (AFPC) headed by the Head of Delegation, Senior Advisor to the US Department of Defense for Energy and National Security, and former Under Secretary of State of the United States William Schneider.

The Chairman  expressed his gratitude to the American Council for the consistent support of the state sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine and for the support of sanctions against Russia in connection with its aggressive policy.  He also focused on the danger of implementing the North Stream 2 project and the need to unite the efforts of the entire civilized world against the construction of this gas pipeline.

It is his burning conviction, the countries supporting the North Stream 2 should understand that "Russia directly finances radical political forces that destabilize the situation in many European countries and provides them with corrupt Gazprom money".

A.Parubiy noted that "the key ally of Ukraine is the United States of America, which most comprehends the magnitude and globality of the Russian threat". “Now, there is the moment when we can reach a new stage of cooperation.  I look forward to your experience and great commitment to Ukraine”.

At the same time, the UA Parliament’s Speaker stressed that the world had overestimated the influence and power of ‘Pootin’, and during the Maidan, and in the ATO developments, the Ukrainian people stopped the aggressor.

A.Parubiy thanked the American friends for the correct understanding of the processes taking place in Ukraine, "because this is not just a conflict between Ukraine and Russia - Putin is a global threat to the world, and Ukraine is just at the forefront of this threat".

According to the politician, joining NATO is Ukraine’s key task and priority.

The Chairman of the Ukrainian Parliament said that on Thursday the draft law on national security had already been passed on the first reading.

W. Schneider, in his turn, emphasized that the main thing is Ukraine’s independence, which belittles the status of Russia as an imperial state soundly.

According to him, it is necessary not only to strengthen national security of the country in order to protect its borders and sovereignty, but also to ensure the safety of the Ukrainians from the interference into their internal affairs.

On behalf of the American people, who does possess experience in protecting democratic values and civil rights, he promised to support the Ukrainian people on the path to democracy and independence.
