Ukraine is actively working on development of bilateral security agreements with its allies, US and Germany in particular.

The President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy said this during the traditional evening address.

“These days, we are also meticulously preparing a bilateral security agreement between our country and the United States. We are doing everything to ensure that America’s leadership is tangible,” Zelenskyy pointed out.

Four rounds of talks with the United States on the deal have been already held. After the fourth round, the Head of the Office of the President of Ukraine Andriy Yermak stated that Ukraine would finalize the bilateral security agreement in May.

On May 14, during his visit to Kyiv, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken shared some of the details about the agreement with Ukraine during his speech.

“Within our own 10-year agreement, the United States will support the defence and security across a range of essential capabilities – from its air force to its air defence, from drones to demining […] “If Russia or anyone else were to attack Ukraine, we will work with Ukraine immediately at the highest levels to coordinate how to help you beat back the threat,” Blinken announced.
