Ukraine signs security agreement with Sweden

The document was signed during the visit of the President of Ukraine to the third Ukraine-Northern Europe Summit.

President Volodymyr Zelenskyy and Prime Minister of Sweden Ulf Kristersson have signed an agreement on security cooperation. Zelenskyy announced this on Telegram.

The full text of the Agreement is published on the website of the Office of the President of Ukraine.

Sweden will provide Ukraine with military assistance totalling SEK 75 billion (approximately EUR 6.5 billion) over the period 2024-2026.

Ukraine's military support also includes aviation and air defence, armoured vehicles, artillery, maritime security, mine action assistance, and unmanned aerial vehicles. In particular, the country will continue to provide Archer artillery systems and CV90 combat vehicles, for which the partners will also explore joint production opportunities.

A unique part of the agreement with Sweden is the provision of specialised ASC 890 aircraft, as well as the prospect of transferring JAS 39 Gripen aircraft to Ukraine, including relevant training.

Sweden also supports Ukraine's accession to the EU and NATO.

Today, Zelenskyy arrived in Sweden for the third Ukraine-Nordic Summit. He said that Ukraine will sign three security agreements at once, which will fix the projected defence and other comprehensive support for a long period.
