He expressed hope that despite the consensus-based decision-making mechanism and the right of veto of the member states of the alliance, there will be no major problems with the decision on Ukraine.
"There are all indications that Ukraine will get what it wants in a certain format," Havrylov said.
"Even now at the summit in Vilnius, Ukraine must clearly understand that after the war, say, within a year or two, after certain procedural things are carried out, we will be members of NATO," he said.
The NATO summit will be held in Vilnius on July 11-12.
The Ukrainian side said at all levels that the assurances that "Ukraine will become a member of the Alliance," which were heard during the NATO summit in Bucharest in 2008, are no longer enough.
Instead, Ukraine wants its NATO allies to provide security guarantees and a clear perspective of moving towards full membership in the military alliance.
