According to the bilateral agreement with the UK and similar possible agreements with other countries, Ukraine and its allies provide mutual security guarantees and aid in case of foreign aggression. Of course, it is primarily about the aid for Ukraine under the current conditions of the Russo-Ukrainian war. However, Ukraine also makes similar commitments should any of the ally countries face foreign aggression in the future, Ukraine’s Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal stressed.
“In essence, this is a gradual integration into the NATO system through these security agreements,” the advisor Vlasyuk also noted, commenting on the agreements.
