NATO summit prepares joint declaration with commitments to Ukraine

Jul 10, 2023

At the NATO summit on July 11-12 in Vilnius, a multilateral declaration with specific commitments of the countries to Ukraine is likely to be adopted.

This was reported by RBC-Ukraine with reference to the Financial Times.


Although official pledges have not yet been agreed upon or made public, anonymous sources involved in the discussions told the FT that they will focus on codifying existing military supplies and make a clear promise that they will continue.

There will also be guarantees of training for the Ukrainian military, intelligence sharing, and assistance with defense policy reforms.

According to anonymous sources, NATO will also upgrade the status of the existing NATO-Ukraine commission to the level of a council. This gives Kyiv an equal seat at the table with NATO members and allows it to convene meetings for "crisis consultations."

Earlier, President Joe Biden said that the United States is ready to provide Ukraine with security guarantees similar to Israel after the war. In his opinion, NATO does not have unanimity on Ukraine's accession to the alliance now, and the accession process after the war will take some time.
