Among other things, Luxembourg is to provide military assistance and support to Ukraine over the ten years of the agreement "at the same pace" as in 2022 (at the time of signing the agreement, the country has allocated €80 million since the beginning of the year).

The agreement also reinforces Luxembourg's leading role in the coalition to build Ukraine's IT capabilities and its commitment to support Kyiv in the fields of satellite technology, intelligence and surveillance.

This is the twenty-second security agreement Ukraine has signed with its partners, the previous one was signed with Poland during Volodymyr Zelenskyy's visit to Warsaw.

On Thursday, alongside the NATO summit, the United States will host a meeting of states that have pledged their security assistance to Ukraine.

Recent polls reveal that 65% of Ukrainians believe security agreements with allies are beneficial, but their expectations of them are low.
