Ukraine has become an official member of the NATO Centre for Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence (CCDCOE), with the Ukrainian flag being raised at the organization’s HQ in Tallinn, Estonia, Ukrainian Foreign Ministry said in a Twitter post on May 16.
In its message, the ministry thanked CCDCOE members for inviting Ukraine and expressed gratitude to the Estonian government for its support of Kyiv’s path to joining the organization.
“Today the National Flag of Ukraine is officially raised at the Headquarters of the NATO Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence in Tallinn, marking official accession of Ukraine to CCDCOE,” the ministry said.
Ukraine submitted a request to join CCDCOE in August 2021, prior to Russia’s full-scale invasion of the country.
In March 2022, Ukraine became a “contributing participant” at CCDCOE.
