European and Euro-Atlantic integration

The course of European and Euro-Atlantic integration, defined in the Preamble to the Basic Law of Ukraine, remains a constant priority of the national foreign policy.

Strict adherence to this course is confirmed by Ukraine’s commitments under the Association Agreement between Ukraine and the European Union, the European Atomic Energy Community and their member states, as well as the EU-Ukraine Association Agenda and the Charter on a Distinctive Partnership between Ukraine and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO).

Article 3 of the Law of Ukraine “On National Security of Ukraine” explicitly states that gaining membership in the EU and NATO is a fundamental national interest of Ukraine, which is further confirmed by the National Security Strategy of Ukraine.

The Ministry, in accordance with the Regulation on the Ministry for Reintegration of the Temporarily Occupied Territories of Ukraine, ensures, within its powers, the fulfillment of Ukraine’s obligations under international treaties, including the fulfillment of obligations established by the provisions of the Association Agreement.

In particular, the Ministry of Reintegration, as the central executive body that directly forms and implements policy on the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine, is involved in the implementation of the obligations set out in Title III “Justice, Freedom and Security” of the Association Agreement.
