Security guarantees for Ukraine

Ukraine hopes for security guarantees to be provided by Western countries. These guarantees are necessary to prevent another Russian attack after the war before Ukraine becomes a NATO member.

During the NATO Summit in Vilnius in early July, G7 countries signed a joint declaration which entails long-term support for Ukraine in terms of security and economy. Any country can join it.

Previously, Andriy Yermak revealed that Ukrainian diplomats have already started negotiations regarding security guarantees with the USA.
