Poroshenko: NATO will agree on security package for Ukraine at Warsaw summit

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said that an aid package for the Ukrainian sector of security and defense will be approved during the NATO summit in Warsaw.

“A special participation of our country in the NATO summit this year will be the fact that Ukraine is the only partner country of the Alliance that will have a separate meeting at the highest level: the Ukraine-NATO Commission. This shows the high attention paid by the Alliance countries to our country, loyal support of our country by the allies in a difficult situation, and intention to further strengthen the special partnership that Ukraine and NATO have," the head of state said, during a handover ceremony of the counter-battery radars that arrived from the United States at the Boryspil airport on Saturday.

He added that, as a result of the summit, “we will agree on a comprehensive package of assistance – a document aimed at strengthening the defense of our country with the help of more powerful security structures.”

“This package will allow us to consolidate existing NATO support and will help us to establish a more efficient, effective defense and security, which will also be reformed according to the schedule that was specified in the strategic defense bulletin,” Poroshenko said.

The President noted that the Alliance strongly supports Ukraine and condemns Russia's aggressive actions against Ukraine.
