Ukraine will sign another security agreement during the NATO summit on July 9-11. It has already been prepared, according to the evening address of President Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

According to the head of state, he held an extended meeting regarding the NATO summit. The President noted that the event should be strong for Ukraine and all its partners.

Zelenskyy mentioned that a meeting of the Ukraine-NATO Council will also take place. Work is currently underway on new decisions and documents that will be signed with partners. In particular, there should be good news regarding air defense.

"A new security agreement for Ukraine has also been prepared. A strong agreement that will truly support our entire architecture of security agreements. And we will consistently strengthen it. This is what will guarantee our security until Ukraine's accession to NATO - a decision that is irreversible," Zelenskyy emphasized.

Security agreements

It should be noted that since the beginning of the year, Ukraine has signed 20 security agreements with allies. The latest documents were signed with the European Union, Lithuania, and Estonia, all on June 27.

Such documents are necessary to ensure that Ukraine receives assistance if Russia decides to launch another invasion before the Ukrainian state joins NATO.

Specifically, each document provides for consultations with Ukraine in the event of a new war with Russia. During such consultations, Kyiv aims to communicate its main needs and request specific assistance.
