Ukrainian Defense Minister Oleksii Reznikov and NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg have discussed several concrete projects ahead of the NATO summit in Vilnius in July, the minister wrote on Twitter on April 21.
“I’m happy to have a green light for our close cooperation with NSPA, NATO’s procurement agency,” Reznikov tweeted, following talks with Stoltenberg on the sidelines of the Ramstein format meeting in Germany.
“This will include the National Procurement Review and best-in-the-league advice to Ukraine’s Ministry of Defense. We need excellent defense procurement both to win the war and to be efficient in the future.”
Ukraine has reached unprecedented levels of interoperability with NATO, Reznikov said.
“We are, de facto, already a part of the Alliance’s security space,” he wrote.
“I expressed my hope that this would expedite political decisions regarding our country’s NATO integration.”
