Japan and Ukraine Sign Agreement for Long Term Support

Japan will sign an agreement providing long-term aid to Ukraine, which includes discussions 24 hours after any new Russian offensives to see what support will be needed.

The agreement will last ten years and will be signed during a meeting between Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy on Thursday, June 13th, at the G7 Summit in Italy.

The Japanese agreement will focus on long-term reconstruction efforts, the supply of nonlethal defense equipment, and demining efforts.

Kishida and Zelenskyy last met in May 2023 at the G7 Summit in Hiroshima, Japan.
