The Declaration states that as of today, negotiations between Ukraine and each of the Group of Seven members will begin, "to formalise [support for Ukraine] through bilateral security commitments and arrangements aligned with this multilateral framework, in accordance with our respective legal and constitutional requirements".


The Declaration outlines the commitment of the G7 states to continue providing "security assistance and modern military equipment, across land, air, and sea domains – prioritising air defence, artillery and long-range fire, armoured vehicles, and other key capabilities, such as combat air, and by promoting increased interoperability with Euro-Atlantic partners".

It also states that in the event of a future armed attack by Russia, G7 members "intend to immediately consult with Ukraine to determine appropriate next steps".

Quote: "We reaffirm that, consistent with our respective legal systems, Russia’s sovereign assets in our jurisdictions will remain immobilised until Russia pays for the damage it has caused to Ukraine," the Declaration reads.


  • Earlier, Andrii Yermak, Head of the President’s Office of Ukraine, said that he believes that security guarantees from Ukraine’s Western partners will be provided soon, by spring 2024, but not at the ongoing NATO summit in Vilnius.
  • It is already known that some non-G7 member countries, such as Spain, will join the provision of security guarantees for Ukraine.
