Ukrainian Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman stated this at a meeting with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg in Kyiv on Monday, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

The EU states said they had chose to formally conclude ratification of the Association Agreement with Ukraine, effective September 1.

"These reforms are essential to ensure security and prosperity for all Ukrainians and to bring Ukraine closer to NATO", Stoltenberg said. Tillerson underscored that the Trump administration will be coordinating carefully with the Normandy Four members-Russia, Ukraine, Germany and France-and with Poroshenko and the Russian Federation directly "to see if we can not make progress in a more prompt fashion as well".

Michael Jordan joins Derek Jeter in pursuit to buy an Major League Baseball team
Michael Jordan has reportedly joined Derek Jeter's efforts to purchase the Marlins, but they may be out of luck. The Marlins are not expected to name a victor of the auction by Tuesday's All-Star Game in Miami, sources said.

Tillerson reported that the naming of a special envoy to Ukraine, Ambassador Kurt Volker, was due to USA "disappointment" over progress under the Minsk accords, and emphasized that US and European Union sanctions against Russian Federation will remain in place "until Moscow reverses the actions that triggered these particular actions". The chain of events was set in motion by Poroshenko's election defeat of then-President Viktor Yanukovych, who had been publicly pro-Russia.

In this regard, Groysman called on the whole democratic world to defend the values that are now being defended by Ukraine's heroic warriors on the eastern border of Europe. Kiev has accused Moscow of being behind a massive ransomware attack last month that quickly spilled across Ukraine's borders and infected computers worldwide.

"For many years Russia has been anxious by NATO's military infrastructure moving closer to our borders, potentially this could be the next step", Russian government spokesman Dmitry Peskov said. Other members of the Warsaw pact to join North Atlantic Treaty Organisation were Albania in 2009, and Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Slovakia, Bulgaria and Romania in 2004.
