Ukraine must receive security guarantees, and no one doubts this. Allies and partners are discussing the form in which they will be provided.

“We are receiving the basic guarantees that we need. There is a question about the form of securing these guarantees,” Andriy Yermak, head of the President’s Office, said.

According to him, official Kyiv would like to end up with something in between the Kyiv Security Compact and security treaties between the United States and Israel. At the same time, he pointed out that the ambitions for the NATO summit in Vilnius are not changing.

“We understand that membership will be exactly when the security situation allows it,” Yermak said.
