The parties also considered security issues in Ukraine, in particular, during the snap parliamentary elections scheduled for July 21.

'Today, the issue of security is not only a question of the boundary line of the conflict or the line of demarcation. This is a question of security in society, the mood of the people. Therefore, the mechanism for democratic elections, which we now provide for, is a key component of security," said Avakov.
