Ukraine said Wednesday it would soon sign a security agreement with the European Union, the latest in a series of accords that it hopes will ensure military aid for years to come as it battles Russia.

President Volodymyr Zelenskyy last week hailed an “unprecedented” 10-year security deal agreed with the United States as a “bridge” to NATO membership for his war-battered country.

“The Ukrainian and EU negotiating teams finalized the text of the security agreement and agreed to sign it in the near future,” the Ukrainian presidency said in a statement.

The security accords come at a perilous time for Ukraine. Its forces are outgunned and outmanned as they struggle to hold the line in the east and south of the country against Russian attacks.
