Nuclear weapon states' assistance crucial: Ukraine’s official on G7 security guarantees for Ukraine

13 July, 2023 Thursday

Ukraine’s NSDC Secretary Oleksiy Danilov says that G7 security guarantees for Ukraine have been one of the key events at the NATO summit. He also emphasizes the importance of assistance from countries possessing nuclear weapons in supporting Ukraine


He made the statement on the United News telethon.

According to him, few people have analyzed the joint declaration of the G7 countries on support for Ukraine, which will allow the country to have security agreements with each member. According to Danilov, this was one of the main events of the NATO summit for Ukraine.

"It is a very important thing when the nuclear weapon states provide us with such assistance," the NSDC Secretary emphasized.

He also added that the NATO summit showed that Russia's dreams of restoring the empire can be put to rest.

"We will join NATO, there is no doubt about it anymore. Moreover, yesterday showed that the Russians' dreams of rebuilding the Russian Empire have been put to rest. The Russian Empire will no longer exist," Danilov said.

Declaration on security guarantees for Ukraine

On Wednesday, July 12, the G7 countries agreed on a joint declaration that outlines the framework of security guarantees for Ukraine. The agreement will be open to anyone who wants to join. US President Joe Biden said that the declaration outlines support for Ukraine in the short and long term.

The Office of the President of Ukraine noted that this was an important victory for Ukraine on its way to NATO and a great result, which was preceded by many months of work by the team at the level of national security advisers from the US, Britain, France, and Germany, as well as in communication with other partners.

What does the declaration include?

"We, the Leaders of the Group of Seven (G7), reaffirm our unwavering commitment to the strategic objective of a free, independent, democratic, and sovereign Ukraine, within its internationally recognized borders, capable of defending itself and deterring future aggression," the joint statement reads.

What security guarantees provide:

a) Ensuring a sustainable force capable of defending Ukraine now and deterring Russian aggression in the future, through the continued provision of:

  • security assistance and modern military equipment, across land, air, and sea domains – prioritizing air defense, artillery and long-range fires, armored vehicles, and other key capabilities, such as combat air, and by promoting increased interoperability with Euro-Atlantic partners;

  • support to further develop Ukraine’s defense industrial base;

  • training and training exercises for Ukrainian forces;

  • intelligence sharing and cooperation;

  • support for cyber defense, security, and resilience initiatives, including to address hybrid threats.

In addition, it provides for measures in case of new Russian aggression, which include immediate consultations to provide Ukraine with everything it needs for defense as soon as possible.

The Allies also pledge to continue their support in holding Russia accountable for its aggression and to take economic and legal steps to punish Russia and increase its costs of war. These include: further strengthening sanctions pressure, freezing assets, establishing mechanisms for collecting reparations, and prosecuting those responsible for crimes against Ukraine and Ukrainians in accordance with international law;

For its part, Ukraine is committed to:

a) Contributing positively to partner security and to strengthen transparency and accountability measures with regard to partner assistance;
