Zelenskyy and Biden sign a bilateral security agreement

Jun 13, 2024

President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy and U.S. President Joe Biden have officially signed a 10-year security agreement between the two countries.


The American leader said this during a joint briefing with the Ukrainian president.

Biden outlined the details of the security agreement between Ukraine and the United States:

  • The goal of the United States is to strengthen Ukraine's defense and its ability to deter aggression for the long term;
  • The United States promises to help ensure this not by sending American troops to Ukraine but by providing weapons and ammunition, expanding intelligence sharing, training the military, and investing in the military-industrial base;
  • Support for Ukraine's economic and energy recovery;
  • This agreement accelerates Ukraine's integration into the EU and NATO.

According to Biden, the United States has imposed about 300 more sanctions against individuals or companies in Russia.

These include individuals and companies that supply Russia with key trace elements for military production.

Sanctions have also been imposed on Russian energy projects in the oil and gas sector that are under construction or have not yet been fully commissioned.

Zelenskyy, in turn, thanked Biden, the US Senate, and the entire American people for helping Ukraine.
