Ukraine and Lithuania Sign a Bilateral Security Agreement


In Brussels, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy and President of Lithuania Gitanas Nausėda signed an agreement on cooperation in security and long-term support between Ukraine and the Republic of Lithuania.

Lithuania aims to annually provide support to Ukraine in the field of security and defense amounting to 0.25% of GDP.

Lithuania will support Ukraine in the areas of security and modern military equipment in land, air, sea, space, and cyber-electromagnetic domains. Additionally, Lithuania potentially plans to resume a military training mission on Ukrainian territory.

Certain provisions of the agreement establish joint efforts against hybrid threats, nuclear risks, and also include strengthening the protection of critical infrastructure and cooperation in intelligence.

The document explicitly supports the Ukrainian peace formula and our country's membership aspirations in the EU and NATO. Specific sections address holding the aggressor accountable, enhancing sanctions against Russia, and working towards establishing a compensation mechanism.

Earlier today, Ukraine and the EU signed a historic bilateral security agreement during the EU Summit.
