Ukraine does not want to enroll in NATO in near future

(MENAFN) Ukraine’s Foreign Minister Dmitry Kuleba claimed that he doesn’t see how NATO could change its view on Kiev’s agreement to the bloc soon.

“Ukraine still pursues Euro-Atlantic integration, but I do not see the potential in the near future for NATO to change its position in a way the European Union did, and to take concrete steps to ensure Ukraine's accession to the alliance," Kuleba informed local reporters.

Kuleba said that as the EU has radically changed its view on Ukraine’s membership when Russia started its military attack, NATO is still living “in a pre-conflict world” regardless of welcoming Kiev in 2008.

“As of February 24, NATO had an edge over the EU in this respect, because it had a decision on Ukraine eventually becoming a member of the alliance… Over the past four months, the EU outpaced NATO, taking the process to the second stage, while the alliance is standing still,” he went on.
