Warsaw, 8 July 2024

In Warsaw, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy and Prime Minister of Poland Donald Tusk signed the Agreement on Security Cooperation between Ukraine and the Republic of Poland.

Since the beginning of the full-scale Russian invasion, Poland has provided our country with a total of 44 military packages of various types of weapons and ammunition worth more than EUR 4 billion. This year, Poland will provide several more military assistance packages, and according to the agreement, it is committed to continue supporting Ukraine for ten years of the document’s validity.

Poland will consider providing Ukraine with at least one additional MiG-29 squadron (minimum 14 fighter jets).

For the first time among the bilateral security agreements already signed, the document enables the interception of missiles and drones in our country’s airspace fired in the direction of Poland.

Also for the first time, the security agreement provides for the creation of the Ukrainian Legion – personnel of the Security and Defense Forces of Ukraine to be trained in Poland, which will be open to Ukrainian citizens temporarily residing in Poland and other countries.

The agreement includes a powerful block on cooperation in the defense industry, including the location of Polish defense companies’ production facilities in Ukraine and the exploration of additional opportunities for joint defense production.

Poland will also continue to operate the POLLOGHUB logistics hub and use the potential of the LITPOLUKRBRIG to strengthen the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

The document aims to strengthen cooperation in the non-military sphere, in particular in intelligence, cybersecurity, maritime and information security, and defense of critical infrastructure.

Separate blocks of the agreement relate to economic recovery and reconstruction, border infrastructure, and the development of transit potential.

Political cooperation includes issues of European integration, implementation of Ukraine’s Peace Formula, sanctions, compensation for Ukraine’s losses, and bringing the aggressor to justice.

Poland clearly reaffirms its support for Ukraine’s EU and NATO membership.

The document was signed in furtherance of the G7 Joint Declaration of Support for Ukraine, adopted in Vilnius on July 12, 2023.

In total, Ukraine has already concluded 21 bilateral security agreements: with the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Denmark, Canada, Italy, the Netherlands, Finland, Latvia, Spain, Belgium, Portugal, Sweden, Iceland, Norway, Japan, the United States, the EU, Estonia, Lithuania, and Poland.
