Key NATO Summit Decisions: Ukraine's Path to Membership and Aid Package Details

Share this article

In Washington, the 75th anniversary NATO summit has concluded. Here are the main decisions for Ukraine:

• NATO members acknowledged "tangible" progress in Ukraine's reforms. The Alliance termed Ukraine's accession as "irreversible" and assured support for its Euro-Atlantic integration path. Decisions made at the summit serve as a "bridge" towards Ukraine's membership in the bloc. However, there were no specific timelines outlined for membership in the final declaration.

• NATO members agreed on a €40 billion assistance plan for Ukraine by 2025 — the bloc committed to this aid package. The U.S. will cover half of this amount, with allies covering the other half. These funds will support military aid, related orders and supplies, as well as training.

• A senior NATO representative will be stationed in Ukraine to assist with reforms necessary for accession, reporting to Brussels and the new command in Wiesbaden (NSATU), which will coordinate military equipment deliveries and Ukrainian troop training.

• Ukraine will receive additional air defense systems: Germany and Romania will transfer two Patriot batteries, the Netherlands and partners will provide one, and the United States will also contribute one. Italy will supply the SAMP-T system. In the coming months, the U.S. and allies will transfer NASAMS, HAWK, IRIS-T, and Gepard systems.

• Norway will send six F-16 fighter jets to Ukraine this year. The first F-16s from Denmark and the Netherlands are already on their way and expected to be delivered this summer.
