Zelensky, European Commission president discuss security situation.

President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky held a phone conversation with President of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen on Wednesday evening.

Ukrinform reports this with reference to the Ukrainian president’s press service.

“The Head of State informed about the development of the security situation in the east of our country given the tensions around the Ukrainian border, as well as about Ukraine’s efforts aimed at a peaceful settlement,” reads the report.

It is noted that Zelensky thanked for the unwavering support for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine, in particular for the strong signals expressed by Ursula von der Leyen during her recent visit to Washington.

“The parties discussed the aggravation of the situation on the European-Belarusian and Ukrainian-Belarusian borders. The interlocutors stated that this situation is a hybrid attack that requires joint efforts and cooperation,” reads the report.

Zelensky informed the President of the European Commission about the steps taken by Ukraine to enhance security on the Ukrainian-Belarusian border.

“In this context, the ways of expanding cooperation between Ukraine and the European Union in the field of migration and the possibility of attracting EU assistance for the arrangement of the Ukrainian-Belarusian border were discussed,” reads the report.

The parties also discussed the issue of Europe's energy security. In this regard, the President of Ukraine reiterated that the Nord Stream 2 project is primarily a security threat to the whole of Europe.

Zelensky also thanked the EU for the payment of the second tranche of macro-financial assistance in the amount of 600 million euros at the end of October as part of the agreements reached during the 23rd Ukraine-European Union Summit.
