Ukraine has signed a security commitments agreement with Denmark. This is the first country outside the G7 to provide a security commitments agreement to Ukraine, according to the deputy head of the Presidential Office.

Today in Lviv, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy and Prime Minister of Denmark Mette Frederiksen signed an agreement on security cooperation and long-term support.

Zhovkva notes that in 2024, Denmark's military support will amount to at least €1.8 billion. In addition, the Danish Fund for Ukraine has allocated €8.5 billion for 2023-2028.

Agreement details

The agreement contains classic provisions to support Ukraine's future membership in the EU and NATO, the path of reforms, cooperation in the defense industry, intelligence, cybersecurity, the restoration of Ukraine, as well as sanctions and bringing the aggressor to justice. In addition, there is a powerful military bloc.

Zhovkva notes that Denmark is committed to supporting the F-16 coalition, in particular, to provide aircraft, ammunition, and simulators, as well as to support the long-term maintenance of the fighters and the creation of appropriate conditions in Ukraine.

It also includes the development of the navy, demining, and the provision of drones, communications, radars, and detection equipment.

The agreement is valid for ten years, just like other agreements that Ukraine has already signed.

Security commitments for Ukraine

At the NATO Summit in Vilnius, the G7 countries signed a declaration on security commitments for Ukraine, which was later joined by several other countries.

The agreement covers not only military assistance but also financial and economic support, as well as the restoration of Ukraine. In addition, the commitments provide a guarantee of assistance to Ukraine in the event of repeated Russian aggression.

On January 12, UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak arrives in Kyiv on a working visit. In the Ukrainian capital, he signed a historic security cooperation agreement with President Volodymyr Zelenskyy. It has already entered into force and will be in effect for 10 years.

During his visit to Europe, President Volodymyr Zelenskyy signed relevant agreements with Germany and France. Negotiations are also underway with Canada, Italy, and other countries.
