Ukraine and Italy have signed an agreement on security assurances. The document was signed on the second anniversary of Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine, states President Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

The agreement was signed during the visit of Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni to Ukraine.

"Our meetings with the Italian Prime Minister are always meaningful. An important result of today's meeting was the signing of a bilateral security agreement. This document lays a solid foundation for a long-term security partnership between Ukraine and Italy," the President said.

The details of the agreement are not yet known, as the text of the document has not yet been published.

Security assurances for Ukraine

At the NATO Summit in Vilnius, the G7 countries signed a declaration on security assurances for Ukraine, which was later joined by a number of other countries. The declaration provides for a bilateral agreement between the signatory country and Ukraine. Each agreement is unique.

The first agreement on security assurances was signed in early January 2024 with the UK. And during his visit to Europe in February, Zelenskyy signed the relevant agreements with Germany and France.

In addition, a security assurance agreement was signed with Denmark yesterday.
