On February 23, the President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelenskyy and the Prime Minister of Denmark, Mette Frederiksen, signed the Agreement on cooperation in security and long-term support between the countries.

A security agreement was signed between Ukraine and Denmark

Zelenskyy noted that the document confirms Denmark's unwavering support for Ukraine, particularly in the amount of at least 1.8 billion euros in 2024.

Denmark will also support efforts to ensure a holistic F-16 capability through the aviation coalition: providing fighters, ammunition, trainers, training, maintenance. We continue work on a new security architecture for our state. We thank Denmark for its solidarity with our people. Thank you for your help!

The deputy head of the President's Office, Ihor Zhovkva, noted on Facebook that in 2024, military aid from Denmark would amount to at least 1.8 billion euros. At the same time, the Danish Fund for the Support of Ukraine allocated 8.5 billion euros for 2023-2028.

What does the security agreement with Denmark provide

According to Zhovkva, in addition to the usual provisions regarding clear support for Ukraine's future membership in the EU and NATO, the path of reforms, cooperation in the field of the defence industry, in the field of intelligence, cyber security, the restoration of Ukraine, as well as the issue of sanctions and bringing the aggressor to justice, the agreement contains a powerful military bloc.

Denmark "will support efforts to ensure an integrated F-16 capability, including by providing fighters, ammunition, simulators and training, as well as contributing to the long-term maintenance of the fighters and the creation of appropriate conditions in Ukraine."

In addition, they secured support for the development of Ukraine's naval fleet, mine clearance efforts, as well as Denmark's provision of high-tech military assistance: drones, communications equipment, radars and detection equipment.

Previously, such agreements were signed by Great Britain, Germany and France.
