“The Defense Ministries of Ukraine and Germany plan to hold more than 50 joint events in 2021. They are aimed at achieving NATO standards by the Armed Forces of Ukraine, compatibility with the armed forces of partner states, as well as closer cooperation in the field of security and defense with EU member states,” the statement says.

Bilateral defense cooperation plan for next year was agreed during the visit of a delegation of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine headed by Director of the Defense Policy Directorate Yurii Punda to the Federal Republic of Germany.

The delegations of the Defense Ministries of Ukraine and Germany exchanged their analysis of the current security situation in the European region given the growing potential challenges and threats, the ongoing conflict in eastern Ukraine and the continuation of aggressive foreign policy by the Russian Federation, particularly in the Black and Azov Seas.

The head of the German delegation, Rear Admiral Axel Ristau, praised the ambitious plans for defense reform, which the Ukrainian Defense Ministry plans to implement in the next five years.

The German side stressed its support for Ukraine's territorial integrity and independence, readiness to continue working to find ways to resolve the armed conflict with the Russian Federation through political and diplomatic means, including intensifying the Normandy format and using other possible international instruments.
