Norway and Ukraine Sign an Agreement on Security Cooperation and Long-Term Support

Volodymyr Zelenskyy and Prime Minister of Norway Jonas Haar Stere signed the Agreement on cooperation in the field of security and long-term support in Stockholm on May 31.

Norway has committed to providing Ukraine with at least NOK 13.5 billion (approximately EUR 1.2 billion) in military aid this year. This builds upon their long-term commitment, with a nearly €6.4 billion investment in the Nansen program for Ukrainian support from 2023 to 2027.

The agreement guarantees continued Norwegian support throughout its term. Notably, it includes collaboration with allies to develop Ukraine’s modern combat aircraft capabilities. Norway has already expressed willingness to provide F-16 fighter jets.

Furthermore, Norway will contribute to developing Ukraine’s maritime capabilities in the Black and Azov Seas. This includes the continued provision of NASAMS systems, along with equipment and specialist training.

The participants reaffirmed their strong support for Ukraine’s ongoing reform efforts. These reforms aim to strengthen both Ukraine’s security and its economy. Additionally, they support Ukraine’s European and Euro-Atlantic aspirations, including eventual membership in the European Union and NATO.

Norway becomes the third country today and the 15th in total to sign the security agreement with Ukraine.

Earlier on May 31, Zelenskyy signed two security agreements with Sweden and Iceland.
