NATO has implemented a review of what the alliance can contribute within defence procurement in Ukraine. The review will be completed during the year and it will formulate concrete measures financed by one of NATO’s support funds. The work Norway will coordinate within NATO, and the bilateral initiative Norway has implemented with the Ukrainian defence material organization will be coordinated.

The agreement Norway entered into with Ukraine in March has proved interesting also for others, and now Great Britain and Sweden have joined this work.

“There have been major challenges with corruption within defence procurement in Ukraine. Ever since NATO asked Norway for help in 2014, we have supported Ukraine by building integrity into laws, rules and procedures for good defence procurement,” says Minister of Defence Bjørn Arild Gram.
