Ukraine is set to join the NATO cyber-defence centre following a vote confirming its admission. The move is expected to anger Russia and bring Ukraine closer to NATO.

The Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence (CCDCOE) announced that Ukraine and several other non-NATO countries will become a “contributing participant”.

“Capability and knowledge comes from experience, and Ukraine definitely has valuable experience from previous cyber-attacks to provide significant value to the NATO CCDCOE,” said Estonia’s minister of defense, Kalle Laanet.

“Estonia as a host nation of the CCDCOE has been a long-term partner for Ukraine in enhancing its cybersecurity capacity and cyber-resilience and we welcome the decision of the members of CCDCOE agreeing to Ukraine’s membership,” he continued.
