Bakanov, U.S. congressmen discuss threats facing Ukraine

Chief of the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) Ivan Bakanov and U.S. congressmen have discussed threats facing Ukraine, the SBU press service has reported.

"The current threats from Russia are now related to the conduct of the strategic Russian-Belarusian military exercises West 2021 on our border, attempts to destabilize the political situation in our country, and elections to the State Duma of the Russian Federation. We have information that it is planned to actively involve the local population of the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine in the voting," Bakanov said.

Therefore, the main tasks for Ukraine remain the protection of territorial integrity, state sovereignty and countering the hybrid aggression of the Russian Federation, Bakanov said.

Brian Fitzpatrick, a Pennsylvania congressman and co-chair of the Congressional Ukraine Caucus, said that Ukraine is a young country that has achieved a lot in 30 years of its independence and which has to face extremely serious threats. That is why the United States will continue to provide full support to the country, he added.

The parties acknowledged that no less important threat to Ukraine is internal corruption, the fight against which is a priority for all government agencies today.
