Germany and the Netherlands have reaffirmed their strong support for Ukraine’s independence, territorial integrity, and sovereignty, according to a joint declaration on March 27, following the German-Dutch governmental consultations.

“We continue working together to achieve a just and lasting peace and a prosperous future for Ukraine by providing sustainable financial and humanitarian aid as well as military equipment and sufficient training in order to enable Ukraine to defend itself,” the declaration says.

Germany and the Netherlands will explore possibilities to collaboratively procure ammunition for Ukraine.

The two countries are committed to maintaining, and where possible increasing, the pressure on Russia to stop the war, including through further restrictive measures.

“Countering sanctions circumvention is a key priority to tackle at the European level, including effective data sharing and analysis, engagement with the private sector, diplomatic outreach, and additional sanctions,” the report says.

The Netherlands and Germany reaffirm their strong commitment toward ensuring accountability in accordance with international law for crimes and other atrocities committed on the territory of Ukraine through appropriate, fair, and independent investigations and prosecutions at the national or international levels.

“Impunity is not an option,” the declaration says.
