Ukraine has learnt to resist a military threat from Russia but the risk of hybrid attacks remains on the agenda, Ukrainian Foreign Ministry has said at the 14th Yalta European Strategy Annual Meeting organized by the Victor Pinchuk Foundation.

"We saw how we can resist a military threat but we are very sensitive to cyber and other hybrid threats," an LB.ua correspondent present at the forum quoted Klimkin as saying.

The foreign minister anticipates more risks to Ukraine after the elections in Russia.

He said he is wary of Russia's attempts to bribe Ukrainian politicians by all means, to split society in terms of the language issue and to cause other problems to Ukraine.

"This is what Russia's mainstream policy on Ukraine still is," he said.

For Ukraine to be able to withstand these challenges, solidarity of the international community is important, the minister said.
