Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky revealed that his country is currently in negotiations with the United States to establish levels of military, financial and other support for the next ten years.

“Today, our teams – from Ukraine and the United States – are working on a bilateral security agreement. They are already working on concrete formulations (…) discussing the concrete basis of our security, our cooperation. We are working to record concrete levels of support on paper for this year and the next ten years. This will include military, financial and political support, as well as with regard to joint weapons production,” he said in a video posted on his Telegram channel.

Zelensky emphasized his desire for this agreement with the United States to be “the strongest” among similar documents he has already signed or plans to sign with other allies.

At the Vilnius summit in the summer of 2023, the G7 countries announced their plans to sign security guarantee agreements with Ukraine. Such ten-year agreements have already been signed with the United Kingdom, Germany, Denmark, Italy, Canada, Latvia, the Netherlands, Finland and France.

According to Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova, these agreements say nothing about “guarantees” but only mention what Kiev’s allies are doing and how, without promising anything further.
