    The inaugural meeting of the NATO Comprehensive Assistance Package (CAP) for Ukraine Project Management Board was held on 3 July 2023 chaired by Olha Stefanishyna, Deputy Prime Minister for European and Euro-Atlantic Integration of Ukraine, and Thomas Goffus, NATO’s Assistant Secretary General for Operations.

    “Ensuring the effective implementation of Comprehensive Assistance Package projects aimed at strengthening Ukraine’s defence capabilities is becoming even more important in the context of the upcoming major transformations envisaged as part of Ukraine’s deepening integration into NATO and achieving full interoperability with the Alliance. The CAP Project Management Board, which we are launching today, will become a necessary link between the political and military structures of the Alliance and Ukrainian institutions in the process of project development and implementation,” said Deputy Prime Minister Olha Stefanishyna in her opening remarks.

    At the meeting, the parties discussed the current status and prospects of priority projects under the CAP, which will be presented at the NATO Summit in Vilnius next week.

    The Deputy Prime Minister expressed the hope that the forthcoming Summit would make “fundamental decisions for Ukraine, our common future and the stability of the entire European continent.”

    “Everything that is being done to deepen the NATO-Ukraine partnership, including the establishment of the Board, serves one strategic goal – to bring us closer to the Alliance, to make us more capable, stronger and more resilient on the path to Ukraine’s victory,” concluded Olha Stefanishyna.


    At a meeting in Warsaw on 9 July 2016, the Heads of State and Government of the NATO-Ukraine Commission endorsed the Comprehensive Assistance Package (CAP) for Ukraine. The objective of the Package is to consolidate and enhance NATO’s assistance for Ukraine. This will enable Ukraine to become more resilient, to better provide for its own security and to carry out essential reforms, in particular in the security and defence sector.
