Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said that Ukraine and Moldova must strengthen cooperation in humanitarian, economic, energy and security spheres to counter Russian aggression.
"We must do everything together so that Russian aggression can no longer threaten Ukraine, Moldova or anyone in Europe. On this basis, we must strengthen our cooperation in all directions: humanitarian sphere, economy, energy, border policy and security," Zelensky said at a briefing with Moldovan President Maia Sandu in Kyiv.
According to the head of state, Ukraine and Moldova share the same roots of threats created by Russian Federation aggression and Russian policy. "If the threats have the same roots, then our responses should be joint," he said.
Zelensky also called the European Council's decision to grant Ukraine and Moldova the status of candidate states for the European Union an important historic decision.
"I am sure that due to the success of European integration our countries will become even closer. We will definitely exchange experience on our way to full membership in the EU", - summed up the President.
