Kyiv Security Compact: Which security guarantees Ukraine really needs?

In times of a large-scale Russian-Ukrainian war, national security for Ukraine is a question of survival. Our country needs not only international partners’ assistance plans but also reliable international security guarantees, to make it impossible for Russia to consider the war as an instrument of pressure on Kyiv.

Unlike the strategy of constant self-defense, Ukraine’s NATO membership remains the most logical and the most realistic way to restrain the aggressor and fight its neoimperialism. Moreover, the success of the Ukrainian army has already proven the country’s readiness to join the alliance.

All the international security guarantees for Ukraine, including non-military ones, such as sanctions, are not a substitute for joining NATO – and the latter remains the only effective mechanism to defeat Russian aggression.
