Ukraine is negotiating security agreements with six more countries after the UK

Talks are going on with the USA, Germany, Italy, France, Canada, and Poland to sign security agreements similar to the first such agreement that Ukraine signed with the UK on 12 January 2024, said Vladyslav Vlasyuk, adviser to the head of the Presidential Office on the TV air.

President Zelenskyy also said on 14 January 2024 that Ukraine is working with other international partners on similar agreements, not naming specific countries.
