A.Parubiy sets accession to NATO and EU, keeping up national identity among key objectives of Ukraine’s path of development

(  Press Service of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine )

  "Preservation of our national identity, joining NATO and the European Union are key stages of the development programme of Ukraine" – Andriy Parubiy

Speaking at the International Forum of Central and Eastern Europe "Via Carpatia", Andriy Parubiy, the Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine, emphasized that the current agenda includes very important issues - trust between the elite and the society, and an ideal conception of the future as well as an ideal country, which we all want to live in.

To have correct answers, we must, according to him, remember about a dreadfully wry information society.  In addition, A. Parubiy said "there is also a certain trauma of a stateless nation - and this is also a great psychological injury, which has many consequences for the attitude of the nation to everything, including the authorities. At the same time, the information world in general sometimes distorts reality so radically that it is barely recognizable".

The Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada stressed there are everyday information attacks against minds of Ukrainians, and this hybrid war is a struggle for minds and hearts of people. "There is a huge problem of dialogue and dissemination of genuine information," he said.

The most important is that Ukraine should be a Ukrainian state. "Therefore, we have fought so desperately for the language and the church, and I want to send my special thanks to Mykola Kniazhytskyi and Petro Poroshenko simultaneously, so we have battled so fiercely for de-communization, for reforming our education, for the language quotas, and for Ukrainian cinema. Because we did understand that nobody would build Ukraine except us," he underlined.

To ensure security, we have not enough strength at the moment, because we are opposed to one of the largest militaristic powers of the world - the Russian Empire.  "And that is why it is extremely important for us to head towards NATO. This is the highest security system. To ensure safety for our citizens, in order to prevent new famines, new destructions, so that our guys would not go under as they did five years ago... in order to avoid all the above said…we must become a member of the North Atlantic Alliance as a supreme security system for every Ukrainian citizen, for every Ukrainian warrior," the Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine stressed in conclusion.
