United States/Ukraine security agreement: Moscow mocks a worthless “piece of paper”

Russia estimated on Friday that the security agreement signed the day before between the United States and Ukraine was a simple “piece of paper” with no real binding value.

“The fact is that (these agreements) are just pieces of paper (…). These agreements are nothing, they have no legal value,” declared the spokesperson for Russian diplomacy, Maria Zakharova, quoted by Russian press agencies.

Ukraine signed security agreements with the United States and Japan on Thursday, after having done the same with several other Western countries in recent months including France and the United Kingdom.

These documents are essentially promises from these countries to continue providing long-term military and financial support to confront the Russian offensive.

According to Maria Zakharova, these documents aim above all to “demonstrate to citizens remaining in Ukraine (…) that the world community still seems to be with them”. “In reality, they legally absolve themselves of any responsibility for the future of Ukraine,” she added.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, for his part, said Thursday that the ten-year agreement signed with the United States “opens the way for Ukraine’s integration into NATO.”

This document must also “contribute to deterring and confronting any future aggression”, according to the terms of the text.
