Ukraine has been granted membership in NATO’s Enhanced Opportunities Program. This was reported by eurointegration.com.ua, citing Ukraine’s Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba.

"We have been going to this headline on the NATO website for a long time. In January 2020, following the instructions of President Volodymyr Zelensky, Ukraine officially applied for NATO’s Enhanced Opportunities Program. Then there was a lot of diplomacy. A lot of diplomacy at all levels. And that is it. Everything has worked out. Only few people believed that we would succeed, but we did it," Kuleba wrote.

This status is part of NATO's Partnership Interoperability Initiative, which aims to support and deepen cooperation between Allies and Partners who have made significant contributions to NATO-led operations and missions.

According to the alliance, as an enhanced partner, Ukraine will benefit from individual opportunities that will help support its contribution. This includes expanded access to interoperability applications, as well as to a wider exchange of information.

"This decision recognizes Ukraine’s strong contributions to NATO missions and demonstrates the Alliance’s continued commitment to its partnerships," NATO spokeswoman Oana Lungescu said.

As we reported earlier, on May 27, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky approved the yearly national program Ukraine-NATO, designed for this year.
