Ukraine has become the de facto Eastern border of the united Europe and Ukrainians are once again fulfilling their millennial mission of defending our common European home from threats from the East. It was stated by President Petro Poroshenko in the course of the speech at the 14th Yalta European Strategy Annual Meeting “Is This a New World? And What Does It Mean for Ukraine?”

“Ukraine has become the de facto Eastern border of the united Europe. Today, we are once again fulfilling our millennial mission of defending our common European home from threats from the East,” Petro Poroshenko emphasized.

The Head of State noted: “Hundreds of thousands of Ukrainians are raising their arms to protect not only the freedom and independence of their own state, but also security of the whole of Europe, our common values”.

“No one in the history of the European Union has paid in so much blood and iron for a European perspective and EU association,” the President stressed.

Petro Poroshenko also emphasized that Ukraine had regained its own place and vocation in the new world. “Our historic place is in the united European family and the Trans-Atlantic, Western alliance. Our vocation is to become the Eastern border of the European civilization, a contributor to European and international security, an engine of the continental economy,” he said adding that the given vocation would be fulfilled together with the friends of Ukraine.

“We will move to a full-fledged membership in the EU and NATO. As the events of the recent years have demonstrated, this is the genuine guarantee of Ukraine’s independence, sovereignty, welfare and prosperity,” the President noted.
