Which EU countries have not joined the declaration on security guarantees for Ukraine yet

Currently, six EU member states have not joined the declaration on providing Ukraine with security guarantees yet. These are Austria, Croatia, Poland, Hungary, Slovakia and Malta.

Andrii Sybiha, Deputy Head of the Office of the President of Ukraine for International Affairs, said this on Saturday, December 23, during the United News TV marathon. "Out of 27 EU countries, only 6 have not yet joined the joint declaration," the official said.

According to Sybiha, Ukraine is now working to ensure that these partners also join the declaration. He noted that there is no need to convince the EU countries of the expediency of such a step as sooner or later they will make it and everyone understands this.

"We are just talking about specific things in which this or that state is strong and ready to commit to one of the blocs set out in the declaration. I think that all these states have the political will to become a party to the declaration," the deputy head of the OP added.

He also spoke about negotiations with Poland on joining the declaration. President Volodymyr Zelenskyy discussed this with the Polish Foreign Minister during their meeting in Kyiv.

"Our expectations were met, we heard the position of the Polish side. I am convinced that we will reach the right result that both countries deserve," Sybiha said.

As a reminder, the Joint Declaration of Support for Ukraine, adopted by the G7 countries during the summit in Vilnius in July 2023, provides for the provision of security guarantees for Ukraine. The leaders agreed on a framework document, and Kyiv is expected to sign separate security agreements with each country.

Recently, representatives of Ukraine held another round of talks with their German counterparts on security guarantees for our country. Earlier, the Presidential Administration reported that Ukraine had launched the first round of consultations with the European Union on collective security guarantees for our country.

As OBOZ.UA reported, Britain decided to become the first country to sign a bilateral security agreement with Ukraine. The document, which provides for military assistance for ten years, may be signed in early 2024.
