    First Deputy Minister of Economy of Ukraine Denys Kudin took part in a meeting of the Economics and Security Committee of the Parliamentary Assembly of the North Atlantic Alliance.

    During the meeting, they discussed the macroeconomic situation in Ukraine, wartime economic policy, macroeconomic forecast, reconstruction and development plan, as well as cooperation between Ukraine and NATO.

    Members of the NATO Parliamentary Assembly expressed their admiration for Ukraine's resilience. They noted that at the beginning of the war, most experts expected our military and economic collapse, which, fortunately, did not happen.

    "Ukraine is grateful to NATO for expanding the existing mechanisms of cooperation, first of all, within the framework of the Comprehensive Assistance Package. It includes the provision of non-lethal international technical assistance and services as well as staff training. We appreciate greatly the Alliance's contribution to the organization of treatment of severely wounded Ukrainian soldiers abroad. However, the situation at the front and in the rear requires even more intensive cooperation between Ukraine and NATO," Denys Kudin stressed.

    He also reminded that Ukraine protects not only itself but the whole of Europe from russian aggression.

    "We bear an incredible burden of human casualties and destruction. Therefore, we hope for solidarity on the part of the North Atlantic Alliance and intensification of all possible support mechanisms," said the First Deputy Minister of Economy.
