France, together with the G7, wants to develop a mechanism for compensating damage to Ukraine.

France, together with other G7 countries, intends to work to create a mechanism for compensation for damage caused to Ukraine as a result of hostilities,  the security agreement between Paris and Kiev, published on the website of Vladimir Zelensky’s office said.

“As a priority, participants will continue to work together with G7 states and other countries to establish a compensation mechanism to compensate for damage, loss or harm,” the text says.


As noted, France, within the framework of the agreement, also intends to help Ukraine counteract the “manipulation of information.”


The agreement also spells out France’s intention to protect Ukraine’s critical infrastructure, including by military means, mainly by strengthening air defense systems.

“The participants will work together to allow Ukraine to detect, deter and suppress any cyber aggression or cyber espionage,” the text of the agreement states.

According to the document, France and Ukraine agreed on the need to expand cooperation between military enterprises of the two countries, and also intend to promote the creation of joint ventures, including for the maintenance and repair of weapons and military equipment.


French President Emmanuel Macron previously stated that the security agreement between Paris and Kiev was signed for a period of ten years and will remain in force until Ukraine joins NATO. He said the agreement includes the allocation of 3 billion euros in military aid to Ukraine in 2024. According to Macron, the agreement covers the supply of modern military equipment to Ukraine, compatible with weapons supplied by NATO, the training of Ukrainian soldiers, and the strengthening of Ukraine’s defense industry. We are talking about organizing a joint production of weapons in Ukraine with French companies.
