NATO’s relations with Ukraine

NATO’s relations with Ukraine

NATO believes that a sovereign, independent and stable Ukraine, firmly committed to democracy and the rule of law, is key to Euro-Atlantic security. NATO and Ukraine’s partnership dates back to 1997 and has, since then, developed into one of the most substantive of NATO’s partnerships. The formal basis for NATO-Ukraine relations is the 1997 Charter on a Distinctive Partnership, which established the NATO-Ukraine Commission (NUC), and the Declaration to Complement the Charter signed in 2009. Over time, NATO and Ukraine have reinforced political dialogue and practical cooperation through Ukraine’s Annual National Programme. In the wake of the Russia-Ukraine crisis, they have been intensifying this cooperation.

They violate Ukrainian laws and run directly counter to the Minsk agreements co-signed among others by the two self-proclaimed ‘republics’ and by the Russian Federation.
