The NATO foreign ministers have called for a multi-year programme of support for Ukraine. This programme should help Ukraine get closer to NATO, Yevropeyska Pravda has reported.
"We will develop a multi-year initiative to support Ukraine, which will help ensure the conditions for Ukraine's defence, transition from Soviet-era equipment and doctrines to NATO standards, and increase interoperability with NATO," NATO chief Jens Stoltenberg said.
He added that NATO remains committed to an open-door policy and encourages Ukraine to continue on its reform path. In particular, the parties discussed the importance of anti-corruption measures, the rule of law and minority rights.
Stoltenberg confirmed that he is looking forward to seeing Volodymyr Zelenskyy at the NATO summit in July this year.
