KIEV, December 11. /TASS/. Ukraine’s Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk said on Thursday his meeting with NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg on December 15 would focus on filling trust funds for Ukraine.
“We hope for the Alliance’s real aid. We should fill four trust funds, which have been already set up,” Yatsenyuk said by presenting the government program.
Ukraine should implement a new security policy. “The state budget will provide up to 5% of GDP — this is the biggest figure in the history of the country to defense and law enforcement structures. I understand that 105% of GDP ought to be allocated for this purpose. But this does not happen,” he said.
“We should bring the country in line with NATO standards. On Monday (December 15) I’ll have the meeting with the NATO Secretary-General. We hope for the Alliance’s real support. Our army should be built based on the NATO standards,” Yatsenyuk said.
In early December Ukraine and NATO took a decision to start the work of five trust funds for Ukraine.
Earlier, speaking at the first news conference, Stoltenberg said, “We will start implementing the NATO trust funds to support Ukraine in four areas: cyber, logistics, command and control, and rehabilitation of wounded soldiers.”
