KIEV, September 22. /TASS/. NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg and the Ukrainian side have signed agreements on increasing the alliance’s presence in Ukraine, the country’s President Petro Poroshenko said on Tuesday.

"Three important agreements have been signed. An agreement on the status of NATO’s office in Ukraine, the declaration on extending cooperation with NATO and a road map in the sphere of strategic communications," the president said.

The civilian and military offices of the alliance will be united and have greater powers and functions.

The agreements are aimed at strengthening cooperation between Kiev and the alliance in the sphere of strategic communications, naval issues and carrying out special operations.

The alliance earlier said it would continue increasing the military presence in Eastern Europe. NATO will give more powers to the Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces in Europe, boost the response force to 40,000 troops and deploy additional weapons in the east.
