Frederiksen announces signing of security agreement with Ukraine

Feb 23, 2024

Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen has announced that her country will guarantee security support to Ukraine for the next 10 years as part of a bilateral agreement.

The Prime Minister's statement was cited by DR.

The agreement stipulates that Denmark undertakes to support Ukraine in both the military and civilian spheres over the next ten years, Frederiksen said.

"This is the most serious security situation since the end of the Cold War. The Danish government cannot but emphasize how important it is for Ukraine to get the military capabilities it needs. If we do not stand together, Ukraine will not stand, and then potentially Europe will not stand," Frederiksen said.


The agreement will help support Ukraine's ability to defend itself against Russia and deter future Russian attacks.

Under the agreement, Ukraine commits to implementing necessary reforms aimed at promoting democracy and fighting corruption to pave the way for future membership in the EU and NATO.

The Danish Prime Minister expressed confidence that more countries will follow suit.

"With these commitments, we are sending a very clear and unambiguous signal to the international community that we fully support Ukraine, including in the long term," she emphasized.
