While stressing the importance of boosting cooperation between the EU and Eastern European countries on security and crisis management, the chief of the Ukrainian diplomatic mission called on EU more visible role in the resolution of the existing crises in Eastern Partnership and the need to elaborate joint actions with a view of countering disinformation campaigns by Kremlin and cybercrimes.
