Ukraine on Thursday, June 27, signed a security guarantee agreement with Estonia.

RBC-Ukraine reports, citing the Office of the President, about the contents of the bilateral security agreement.

The document states that Estonia will provide Ukraine with defense assistance amounting to over 100 million euros this year and will continue support over the next ten years. The Estonian government will allocate at least 0.25% of GDP annually from 2024 to 2027 for military support to Ukraine, becoming the first country to offer such a percentage in bilateral security agreements.

The document envisions long-term military assistance to Ukraine, including artillery (122mm and 155mm howitzers), anti-tank missile systems, rockets and mines, Carl Gustaf rifles, grenade launchers, drones, and electronic warfare equipment.

Ukraine and Estonia will initiate a regular Strategic Dialogue to discuss security and defense issues. The agreement also covers the supply of arms and military equipment, training, activities within the IT coalition, and other coalition opportunities, as well as cooperation in the defense industry sector.

Specific parts of the agreement concern strengthening sanctions against Russia, compensation for damages, holding the aggressor accountable, assistance in Ukraine's recovery and reconstruction, countering hybrid threats, cooperation in cyber and information security, and protecting critical infrastructure.

The document also confirms Estonia's support for Ukraine's future membership in the EU and NATO.
