Ukraine and Germany have started negotiations on bilateral security guarantees. They are envisaged by the Joint Declaration of Support for Ukraine, which was signed by the leaders of the Group of Seven (G7) countries in Vilnius on July 12, 2023,

This was announced on November 17 on the official website of the President. The Ukrainian negotiating team was headed by the Deputy Head of the Presidential Office Ihor Zhovkva.

"Germany is our reliable partner and one of the leaders in financial, military and humanitarian assistance to Ukraine.

That is why the start of bilateral security talks with Germany is so important," he said.
