Ukraine and Spain Sign Security Agreement With €1 Billion in Military Aid

On May 27, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy and the Prime Minister of Spain Pedro Sanchez have signed a security agreement.

The signing ceremony was broadcasted by the Office of the President.

"We have just signed a political agreement, which has a very important role. This is a treaty about the future, and it is an example of our determination to provide Ukraine with all the tools to ensure stability," said Sanchez.

Spanish Prime Minister emphasized that Spain is the tenth country to sign a security agreement with Ukraine.

"We see security as integrated, so there are several areas. Financial, military, production between Ukraine and Spain, support, reconstruction, recovery, and demining—these are the topics covered by the agreement. Spain has provided significant support over the past two years and commits to further support worth billions of euros to strengthen Ukraine's capabilities," he noted.

Sanchez stressed that the aid package to Ukraine will include air defense assets.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy added that Spain will provide a military assistance package of €1 billion, and by 2027—€5 billion through the European Peace Fund.

Zelenskyy also mentioned that Spain will transfer additional artillery ammunition and armored vehicles to Ukraine, and highlighted that the countries will engage in joint defense projects.

“Thank you Spain for your tangible and truly life-saving support of Ukraine during this time of war,” the President said.

In 2023, at the NATO summit in Vilnius, Group of Seven (G7) countries signed a Joint Declaration on Ukraine's Security. The NATO summit endorsed a statement on security guarantees for Ukraine. Subsequently, relevant agreements with Ukraine were signed by the United Kingdom, Canada, Germany, France, Denmark, Italy, Finland, the Netherlands, and Latvia.
