Ukraine, Denmark foreign ministers discuss preparation of EU’s sanctions against Russia.

During a meeting in Copenhagen, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba and Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Kingdom of Denmark Jeppe Kofod discussed the preparation of the EU’s package of tough economic sanctions against the Russian Federation.

During the talks, Kuleba briefed his Danish counterpart on the security situation near Ukraine’s state border and in the territories occupied by Russia, as well as on the results of the meeting of advisers to the Normandy format leaders in Paris on January 26.

"The Russian Federation is trying to undermine the security not only of Ukraine but of the whole of Europe. We are actively working to consolidate the international community in order to effectively counter Russia's aggressive actions, as this will determine the future of the security architecture in the entire Euro-Atlantic region," Kuleba said, the Ministry’s press service informs.

The minister thanked Kofod for Denmark's solidarity with Ukraine against the background of Russia's aggression, his personal contribution to consolidating international support and implementing a comprehensive deterrence package against Russia, which discourages it from aggressive plans in Europe.

"Denmark is showing real leadership, standing side by side with Ukraine at this time of heightened threats from Russia," Kuleba said.

The minister added that Ukraine greatly appreciates Denmark's unwavering support for its sovereignty and territorial integrity, both bilaterally and within the EU and NATO. According to Kuleba, Denmark's allocation of an additional EUR 22 million for the security sector of Ukraine is an important contribution to the stability and safety of our country.

The ministers also discussed the preparation of the EU’s package of tough economic sanctions against Russia, as well as strengthening cooperation to bolster Ukraine's defense capabilities and cybersecurity.

Kofod reaffirmed his country's readiness to further enhance Ukraine's resilience amid Russia's aggressive actions.

At Kuleba's request, Denmark agreed to consider additional support options to ensure Ukraine's financial and economic stability.

The officials also discussed the implementation of joint investment projects. According to the decision of the Danish government, Ukraine will be a key recipient of technical assistance under the next phase of the Danish Neighbourhood Programme (DANEP) in 2022-2026 with a total budget of EUR 170 million. Of this sum, EUR 73 million will be directed to projects in Ukraine.

"We appreciate the Danish government's desire to increase economic and investment cooperation with Ukraine. This sends a clear signal to foreign investors that despite security challenges, the situation remains under control, our country is showing economic growth, it is attractive for investment and successful commercial projects," Kuleba said.

The Ukrainian minister also met with leading experts and representatives of Danish NGOs and informed them about Ukraine's efforts to protect peace, justice, and security in Europe, finding ways for political and diplomatic settlement of the Russian-Ukrainian armed conflict.

As reported, Kuleba makes a visit to the Kingdom of Denmark on January 26-27.
