Kyiv and Washington are actively “preparing a bilateral security agreement,” Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said in his traditional address to the nation on June 9.

"We are doing everything to make America's leadership felt,” he said, adding that new agreements with European partners, in particular Germany, on additional assistance to Ukraine are also being prepared.

This follows an earlier meeting between US President Joe Biden and Zelenskyy in Paris on June 7, during which the American leader announced a new $225 million military aid package and apologized for “weeks of uncertainty” in approving over $60 billion funding for Kyiv that was blocked by Republican opposition in Congress.
