EU, Ukraine sign security agreement

The European Union (EU) and Ukraine signed a security agreement during a European Council summit in Brussels on Thursday, reported Xinhua.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky attended the summit and signed the security pact during a ceremony together with European Council President Charles Michel and European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen.

According to the document, the EU and its member states have so far collectively provided nearly 108 billion euros (about 115.6 billion U.S. dollars) in assistance to Ukraine.

"The EU is determined to continue providing Ukraine and its people with all the necessary political, financial, economic, humanitarian, military and diplomatic support for as long as it takes and as intensely as needed," the document noted.

The EU also agreed to use the extraordinary revenue stemming from frozen Russia assets to support Ukraine, according to the agreement.

The agreement also emphasized that Ukraine should continue its reforms in line with its path towards the EU, and strengthen transparency and accountability measures concerning the assistance received.

Von der Leyen pledged on social platform X to keep delivering the weapons, military training and the aid Ukraine needs. "This highlights: we are in for the long haul," she added.
