The Russian aggression against Ukraine has become a powerful destabilising factor, which, at the same time, has opened up some new opportunities for the potential of the Ukrainian economy. The purpose of the article is to study the integration capabilities of the national economy of Ukraine during the deployment of military operations and against the background of intensified international cooperation. To achieve the research objective, the author uses the methods of analysis and synthesis, content analysis of modern scientific literature, which helps to determine the current state of understanding of the impact of integration on the development of the Ukrainian economy during martial law. The study results indicate that in international relations, the term “international economic integration” reflects the process of uniting countries or regions for joint economic cooperation, creating a single customs area, overcoming tariff barriers, and solving common economic problems. Under the influence of Russian military aggression, the Ukrainian economy suffered significant losses due to various factors, but improved cooperation with the European Union and NATO helped to mitigate some of the negative effects. Particular attention should be paid to integration into international trade, where since 2014 the majority of Ukraine's exports have been to the EU, a trend that is likely to strengthen in the future. An important development is the introduction of European standards in the military sector, which promotes military-industrial economic integration and opens up opportunities for Ukraine's further participation in European structures. The conclusions emphasise that the political aspects of economic integration remain important for further research, as they have an impact on the consequences of the Russian Ukrainian war.
