Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin has called on Ukraine's European partners to give a joint response to an unconventional but real war waged by the Russian Federation against the civilized world.

On 19 March, he attended a discussion at the Centre for European Policy (EPC) “Building a Secure and Resilient Ukraine: Progress and Challenges".

Klimkin noted in his speech that Ukraine continued its European integration efforts and comprehensive reforms amid the hybrid aggression by Russia.

The Salisbury poisoning of a Russia ex-spy is a "wake-up call for the civilized world", he said.

"Russia is not going to stop and is already carrying out bold chemical attacks in Europe, therefore we should double our efforts to build a secure environment in the EU and neighbouring countries," he said.

"We often hear that Putin crossed this or that 'red line'. There are no 'red lines' for Russia any longer. Forget it. Russia has waged an unconventional but quite real war against democratic institutions and the civilized world. We must give a coordinated response to these threats," he said.
