"We hail the presidential election in Ukraine, an important step towards defusing tensions and restoring security for all Ukrainians, we strongly disapprove of the Russian Federation's aggression against Ukraine, the annexation of Crimea and the destabilization of southern and eastern Ukraine, we firmly reject a return to the policy of influence spheres the Russian Federation is trying to promote in the former Soviet region," reads a release of the Chamber of Deputies to AGERPRES.

The two groups voice their support for the continuation of the dialogue between the United States, the European Union, Ukraine and the Russian Federation with a view to preventing the outbreak of a civil war in Ukraine, for the further imposition of sanctions by the U.S. Government and by the governments of the European Union on the Russian Federation, should Moscow not take action to defuse the situation, for increasing the military presence of the U.S. and NATO in Romania, Poland and the Baltic States, in the spirit of Transatlantic Solidarity and of the strong commitment of the allies towards collective defence, as per Article 5 of the North Atlantic Treaty, towards the fulfillment by NATO members of the already undertaken commitments regarding the allocation of 2 percent of GDP for defence spending, and acknowledge Georgia's aspirations to join NATO, taking into account the sovereign right of each state to decide the alliance it should join, reads the common declaration.
