Ruslan Stefanchuk thanked Italy for supporting Ukraine in these important issues. “The Ukrainian Parliament has made a lot of efforts to ensure that the most difficult reforms were voted for within the walls of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine, which would allow Ukraine to open negotiations with the European Union today,” he emphasized.

In conclusion, the Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine expressed hope for Italy's active participation in building consensus on the decision in Washington on the 75th anniversary of NATO to accept Ukraine's application for membership in the North Atlantic Treaty Organization.
