As noted, the memorandum provides for cooperation in the defence sector.
“An important aspect is the attraction of funding from the UK's export credit agency in the amount of GBP 1.25 billion. This should significantly increase the efficiency and reduce the time of implementation of joint projects in the defence sector, which is critical in the context of aggravation of the situation in the Black Sea region,” the Office of the President of Ukraine emphasizes.
