In a strategic cooperation known as the “Kiev Security Treaty,” Ukraine has made ideas on providing security that are legally and politically binding between Kiev and guarantor states.
The proposal, which was unveiled on September 13 at the request of President Volodymyr Zelensky, was created by an advisory panel under the direction of former NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen.
Kiev specifically requested that the US, UK, Australia, and Turkey serve as security guarantees for Ukraine. In a “multi-layered” approach, the concept calls for a “core” group of allies to firmly commit to supporting the Ukrainian military, while a larger group would offer air force guarantees without relying on sanctions.
We need a military force strong enough to repel the Russians’ desire to retaliate,”Zelensky’s subordinate Andrey yermak
According to Yermak, the deal is merely a means of maintaining security while Ukraine waits to formally join the US-led military alliance, not a replacement for NATO membership.
The “urgent goal” of winning for Kiev was reaffirmed by the former NATO secretary general Rasmussen, who also emphasised that Ukraine would require decades of help from its Western allies.
In March, in Istanbul, Turkey, negotiations with Russia focused heavily on ensuring Ukraine’s security. Moscow contends that Ukraine will obtain guarantees from a number of nations, including Russia, if it pledges not to pursue NATO membership.
After the Ukrainian representative insisted on sovereignty over the Crimean peninsula, which broke away from Kiev’s rule in 2014 and joined Russia after a popular referendum, negotiations eventually came to a conclusion.
The “Kiev Security Treaty” has been under consideration for a while. In the past, Russia has claimed that it could guarantee Ukraine’s security, but former Russian President Dmitry Medvedev claimed in August that Kiev had passed up that chance.
According to Mr. Medvedev’s most recent comments, Kiev will not be given any “security guarantees” because its proposal is essentially “open” head for World War III Mr. Medvedev is currently vice chairman of Russia’s National Security Council.
According to Mr. Medvedev, the deal put out by Kiev amounts to “application of Article 5 of the North Atlantic Treaty to Ukraine,” which refers to collective defence as a key tenet of the accord that created NATO. When one alliance member is attacked, it will be considered an attack on the entire alliance and will result in a coordinated defence.
“Western leaders should understand one thing: It is directly related to the conflict between NATO and Russia. If the proliferation of the most dangerous weapons for the Kiev regime continues, sooner or later the military campaign will reach another level.”Mr. Medvedev -Vice Chairman of Russia’s National Security Council
