Ukraine has embarked on negotiations with Lithuania to forge a bilateral security agreement, as reported by European Truth.

The Office of the President of Ukraine announced that the latest discussions between Ukraine and Lithuania have successfully outlined the key elements of the forthcoming security pact. Spearheaded by Ihor Zhovkva, Deputy Head of the Office of the President of Ukraine, the talks have paved the way for a structured approach towards finalizing the agreement.

"Our document will contain a number of provisions, which for the first time managed to be established in such agreements," Zhovkva emphasized.

This development is part of Ukraine's broader strategy to solidify its defense mechanisms through international partnerships. Recently, Latvia signaled its intention to establish a long-term support and security framework with Ukraine, pledging military aid worth 0.25% of its GDP for the current year and extending over the next two.

Ukraine's diplomatic efforts have already culminated in similar agreements with several other nations, including Great Britain, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, and Finland.

Adding to the momentum, Finnish President Alexander Stubb's recent visit to Kyiv further illustrates the growing network of support for Ukraine. Following his visit, the Ukrainian Presidential Office released the agreement between Ukraine and Finland, detailing the contours of their security cooperation and long-term support.
