Ukraine Presents and Agrees New Reform Plan with NATO – Stoltenberg

Wednesday, 29 November 2023

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg has said that Ukraine presented and agreed with its allies on a programme to meet the Alliance’s requirements.

The Secretary General stressed at a press conference at NATO headquarters in Brussels that the Alliance highly commends Ukraine for its reform progress. 

"I am actually impressed by Ukraine's commitment to implement reforms," he said.

On Wednesday, at a meeting of the NATO-Ukraine Council, Ukraine presented an adapted Annual National Programme for further reforms in line with the Alliance's requirements. "We have agreed on the work program and substructure under the Ukraine-NATO Council to ensure that we follow up on the reforms," the Secretary General said.

The approval of the programme was also confirmed in an official statement by the NATO-Ukraine Council: "NATO and Ukraine are already working and taking decisions together, as equals, on a broad range of issues, including interoperability, energy security, innovation, cyber defence, and resilience." 

European Pravda has received a copy of this document and reports about its content in a video blog, in particular that the list of reforms did not include Hungary's demands; the Alliance found an opportunity to ignore them.

Earlier, Ukraine's Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba also rejected ideas and proposals for a territorial compromise with Russia.
