NATO will show support for Ukraine at Brussels summit, Western envoys say in Kyiv – Kyiv Post
At the NATO summit, starting in Brussels on July 11, the 29-nation alliance is expected prove unity of the Euro-Atlantic collective defense system and commitment to continue supporting Ukraine's struggle against Russian aggression, Western envoys asserted in Kyiv on July 10 during the discussion "What to expect from the 2018 NATO summit."
Hosted by Open Ukraine Foundation, established by former Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk, the discussion gathered U.S. Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch, Canadian Ambassador Roman Washchuk, and director of the NATO Liaison Office in Kyiv Alexander Vinnikov, Kyiv Post reported.
"The thing for this summit in Brussels is to demonstrate NATO's strength, unity, and resolve," Yovanovitch said.
The ambassador's allegations were voiced against the backdrop of U.S. President Donald J. Trump's controversial claims challenging America's obligations towards the NATO allies in Europe, and his repeatedly voiced intentions to improve ties with the Russian President Vladimir Putin.
