Balkans |  Ukraine is seeking Greece’s support in demining

Ukrainian Defense Minister Oleksiy Reznikov asked Greece to support demining in the Black Sea.

Reznikov, who is on an official visit to Athens, met Greek Defense Minister Nikos Panayotopoulos in the capital, Athens.

In a media statement he made after the meeting, the desire to deepen defense cooperation was revealed during the meeting.

Noting that Greece sent humanitarian aid to Ukraine within 2-3 days, immediately after the start of the war in Ukraine, Reznikov thanked Athens for hosting humanitarian, political and military aid and Ukrainian refugees.

“When we win this war, Ukraine will be the country that will join NATO after Sweden,” said Reznikov. He said.

Emphasizing that they will continue their cooperation on the bilateral platform, especially in demining when they win the war, Reznikov said: “Because you have great experience especially at sea, your country’s naval power is strong. We ask for your support, starting with the demining operation, in order to develop the Ukrainian naval capabilities Because this is a humanitarian need for Ukraine and it is necessary for the safety of free navigation in the Black and Azov Seas. He said.

Panayotopoulos also stressed Greece’s support for preserving Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity, noting that despite the cost to the Greek economy, Greece adhered to all embargoes imposed on Russia from the start.
