On 8 October 2013, the European Parliament ratified an agreement on jointly developing a civil global navigation satellite system (GNSS) with Ukraine, as the Ukraine News Agency Interfax announced.

Interfax reported: "The agreement envisages the creation of ground-based infrastructure - three ranging and integrity monitoring stations (RIMS) in Ukraine under the European Geostationary Navigation Overlay Service (EGNOS) project, which is the ground component of the Galileo European Global Navigation Satellite Systems. It is expected that the coverage of Ukraine with the EGNOS system will increase the accuracy of positioning and air navigation systems, which will help increase the safety of flights and airport operations."
