Ukraine has signed three bilateral security cooperation agreements in Brussels: one between Ukraine and the European Union and two others with Lithuania and Estonia, according to UkrInform.

The first deal has been inked by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy and European Council President Charles Michel, as well as European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen. The last two pacts have been signed by Zelenskyy and Lithuanian President Gitanas Nausėda and Estonian Prime Minister Kaja Kallas.

The two-day European Council meeting began in Brussels on 27 June. It is focused on strengthening the EU’s military and economic assistance to Ukraine.

The UK, Norway, Germany, France, Denmark, Canada, Italy, the Netherlands, Finland, Latvia, Spain, Belgium, Portugal, Sweden, and Iceland are among the countries that are willing to help Ukraine in its struggle against Russia’s military aggression. The signed agreements include a comprehensive package of measures to assist Ukraine. These packages include military, economic, and political support.
