Given the continued escalation in the Donbas, including after adoption by the Kremlin, the decision about distribution there the Russian passports, occupation of the Crimea and threat of action in the Kerch Strait in December last year, Michael McCall convinces to pay special attention to strengthening the defense of Ukraine. «We need to develop an effective black sea strategy, in which the United States, NATO and other U.S. allies will be able to regularly deploy naval resources to better support Ukraine against Russia. We also need to increase the international military deliveries and assistance in ensuring the security of Ukraine. Last year’s supply of Javelin anti-tank missiles was a game changer in terms of the ability of this country to better defend itself against Russian proxies in Eastern Ukraine».

In this regard, McCall supported the efforts of Kurt Volker to support the Minsk negotiation process, but agreed with him that large-scale military assistance to Ukraine, however, is needed: «Our hardworking Special representative for negotiations in Ukraine, Ambassador Kurt Volker recently said, «We also need to look at such things as air defense and coastal defense. All that is reasonable and necessary for Ukraine, is to have a modern army able to protect themselves and to prevent further aggression against its territory.»
