“Representatives of these countries demand decisive actions to establish peace in Ukraine,” Stefanchuk said.

He added that the countries vowed to support the military and civil defense of Ukraine, ensure the protection of airspace, and stop the movement of enemy weapons in Ukraine’s territory. “This can be done by supplying anti-tank and anti-aircraft weapons to Ukraine,” he stated.

The Netherlands and Germany will supply Slovakia with American Patriot air-defense systems to replace its S-300, which will be further transferred to Ukraine.

These countries will also provide humanitarian aid, ensure food supplies and medicine to Ukrainian cities that are shelled and bombarded, rescue the wounded and refugees, and protect Ukrainian nuclear facilities.

“It is important that Russia recognizes its responsibility for compliance with the Geneva Conventions,” the Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada added.
