Ukraine, Poland, and the UK Form an Alliance

The alliance should strengthen Ukraine's security against the backdrop of aggression and develop trade between states

According to Dmytro Kuleba, minister of foreign affairs, the new alliance is a "belt of security and prosperity", as well as an association of countries that share common principles, strive to strengthen security, develop trade, and are ready for concrete actions. Within the alliance framework, the countries will cooperate in the fields of trade, investment, energy, in particular, renewable energy. By connecting the Atlantic, the Baltic, and the Black Sea.

“The bottom line is that we cannot wait for security and prosperity somewhere in the future when we become members of the EU and NATO. We need them today. Therefore, we are already achieving practical strengthening today by uniting friendly and congenial countries into small alliances,” Kuleba explained.

He noted that Ukraine came up with the initiative to start such trilateral cooperation in October last year. The minister clarified that the creation of the new format should have been officially announced on February 2, but the British foreign secretary fell ill with COVID-19, so this statement was postponed.

Kuleba reminded that this is not the first such alliance. Thus, Ukraine is already included in the Lublin Triangle with Poland and Lithuania, Quadriga with Turkey, and the Associated Trio with Georgia and Moldova. According to the minister, all these formats are successfully developing and are already bringing concrete advantages to Ukraine.
