    Earlier in April Ukraine already signed a number of agreements with NATO, including a memorandum on technical cooperation.

    “A signing ceremony of the Memorandum of Understanding between the government of Ukraine and NATO on cooperation on consultation, control, communications, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance as part of NATO's Partnership for Peace program took place at NATO headquarters in Brussels,” said the statement on the website of Ukraine’s Mission to NATO.

    "The signing of this international agreement opens up opportunities for further collaboration of our country's and NATO's experts to improve the legal framework for in-depth technical cooperation between Ukraine and the Alliance, as well as reflect the efforts of NATO and its member countries aimed at large-scale support for reforms of the Ukrainian security sector and defense in accordance with decisions made during the NATO summit in Wales," the statement read.

    "A leading role in the implementation of modern information technologies in the Ukrainian army will be played by NATO Communications and Information Agency," it furthermore emphasized.
