Today, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba will make a working visit to NATO Headquarters in Brussels to participate in an extraordinary meeting of the NATO-Ukraine Commission.

The meeting, initiated by Ukraine, is convened within the framework of Article 15 of the Charter on a Distinctive Partnership between the North Atlantic Treaty Organization and Ukraine to implement the agreement between President Volodymyr Zelensky and NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg reached on April 6.

The Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine and NATO members will discuss the aggravation of the security situation by the Russian Federation along the Ukrainian-Russian border and in the temporarily occupied Crimea, efficient ways for the North Atlantic Alliance to support Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.

During the visit, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba will also meet with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg.

Background: Article 15 of the Charter on a Distinctive Partnership between the North Atlantic Treaty Organization and Ukraine provides for a possibility to develop a crisis consultative mechanism to consult together whenever Ukraine perceives a direct threat to its territorial integrity, political independence, or security.

The last time this Article was referred to was in 2018 after Russia’s attack on Ukrainian warships near the Kerch Strait in the Black Sea.
