In 2021, Ukraine and NATO will develop additional measures and practical steps to improve the interoperability of armed forces under the Enhanced Opportunities Partnership (EOP) programme, Director of the NATO Information and Documentation Centre in Ukraine Vineta Kleine said during the panel discussion entitled “Sustainability and Security: What Can Ukraine Learn from NATO?”
It is specified that Ukraine’s status of NATO’s Enhanced Opportunities Partner is a recognition of the country’s important contribution to NATO operations, exercises and response forces.
“This includes improving access to interoperability programmes, conducting exercises, sharing information and learning from our common experience. This year, we will also work with Ukraine to improve the Enhanced Opportunities Partnership programme; there will be additional activities to improve our interoperability,” Kleine said.
She also said that NATO would continue to support Ukraine in its efforts to ensure security and peace.
As a reminder, Ukraine proposes that NATO use the airspace over Crimea for its operations.
