Greece joined the G7 declaration of support for Ukraine. On the basis of this bilateral agreement, security guarantees will be developed that will be in effect until Ukraine joins NATO.

President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyi announced this on August 12.

Greece became the 14th country that supported security guarantees for Ukraine.

On August 11, Ukraine and Greece discussed how to specify certain aspects of the agreement. Long-term goals include the reconstruction of Ukraine, its integration into the European economy, assistance in the energy sector, and support of defense capabilities.

  • On July 12, the "Great Seven" countries agreed on a Joint Declaration of Support for Ukraine — this is a common document (here is the text). The next step is the conclusion of bilateral security agreements between Ukraine and individual guarantor countries. Each of the countries will work with Ukraine on specific bilateral long-term obligations and agreements in the field of security. In the event of a future armed attack by Russia, countries should immediately consult with Ukraine to determine appropriate next steps.
