Ukraine and the Netherlands have signed an agreement on "security guarantees", which provides for two billion euros in military aid this year, as well as further defense aid over the next ten years.

This was announced by the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyi.

"The agreement also defines the priorities of providing assistance in the field of air defense, artillery, naval and long-range means, with a special emphasis on strengthening the Air Force of the Armed Forces of Ukraine," the head of state said.

Zelensky noted that this agreement "formalizes the principled position of the Netherlands" regarding strengthening sanctions against Russia, forcing it to compensate for damages and bring the aggressor to justice.

"According to the document, the Netherlands also supports Ukraine's future membership in the EU and NATO," Zelenskyy added.

It will be recalled that earlier the head of the general staff of the army of the Netherlands stated that now it makes no sense to discuss sending the troops of Western countries to Ukraine, but

the allies should be open to all possible options
