"The training involved about 30 ships, 30 aircraft and more than 900 military personnel from around the world. Undoubtedly, conducting the "Sea Breeze 2019" exercises is an important event for the entire South of Ukraine. I really hope that our friendly Odessa region has made you a good professional and emotional impression, "Svetlana Shatalova said.

"Thank you very much for the fact that, despite the replacement of the building of the regional state administration, you met with me and my team. Your flexibility and courage are the main features of NATO sailors, which is why this meeting is happening now. NATO has its allies around the world and always shows them its commitment. During the visit, we not only conduct maritime training, but also conduct an exchange of experience ", - emphasized Josie Kurz.
