Denmark's Prime Minister, Mette Frederiksen, has announced a new "security obligations" pact with Ukraine, according to DR.

Denmark's Prime Minister, Mette Frederiksen, has shared news of a new "security obligations" pact with Ukraine, as reported by DR.

"This is the most serious situation in the field of security policy since the end of the Cold War. And the Danish government cannot emphasize how important it is that Ukraine gets the military capabilities it needs. If we do not stand together, Ukraine will not stand, and then potentially Europe will not stand either," the Prime Minister stated.

The agreement aims to bolster Ukraine's defense against Russia and prevent future aggression.

Additionally, Ukraine agrees to carry out reforms to strengthen democracy and combat corruption, steps seen as vital for its aspirations to join the EU and NATO.

Frederiksen expressed hope that more countries would adopt similar agreements, signaling strong and long-term support for Ukraine.

"With these commitments, we are sending a very clear and unequivocal signal to the international community that we fully support Ukraine, including in the long term," she added.

Following similar security agreements between Ukraine, France, and Germany, Frederiksen had hoped Denmark would be the next to sign such a pact with Ukraine.
