On March 10, at 3 pm, the Kyiv Security Forum, founded by Arseniy Yatsenyuk Open Ukraine Foundation, will present a document "12 Points of Strategic Partnership Between the United States and Ukraine."

"Ukraine’s membership in NATO will strengthen the Alliance, contribute to the process of the historic unification of Europe, and create the preconditions for transforming relations with Russia."
