Black Sea security: what experience will Greece share with Ukraine?

March 07, 2024


During the visit of the Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis to Odesa, the Russian Federation launched a missile attack on that city. The meeting with Zelenskyy was an important signal of Greece's desire to help restore Ukraine. The co-director of foreign policy and international security programmes of Razumkov Centre Mykhailo Pashkov spoke about this live on the FREEDOM TV channel.

Mykhailo Pashkov also said that when a new stage of European integration begins for Ukraine, the voice of support from Greece is very important for Kyiv. Greece already provides military and humanitarian aid to Kyiv.
