Latest news Ukraine

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has proposed a new agreement with signatories of the Budapest Memorandum to provide Ukraine with security guarantees and protect it from Russian nuclear threats.

Zelenskyy offered signatory countries to sign a new security agreement with Ukraine and Russia separately, Ukrainska Pravda reported.

In 1991, Ukraine agreed to abandon its nuclear arsenal – the world’s third-largest upon the Budapest Memorandum- in exchange for signatory countries’ commitment to respect the country’s independence and sovereignty.
