Ukraine needs signal from NATO that country will join the Alliance after war ends, Zelenskyy says

Ukraine needs a signal that the country will join NATO after the Russo-Ukrainian war ends, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said, according to The Guardian.

“We understand that we cannot be a member of Nato during the war, but we need to be sure that after the war, we will be,” he told a press conference with the visiting Polish and Lithuanian presidents in Kyiv on 28 June. “That is the signal we want to get – that after the war Ukraine will be a member of NATO.”

Zelenskyy reiterated that Ukraine also wanted security guarantees until it can join the Alliance.

“We would want a third signal at the Nato summit that Ukraine will get security guarantees – not instead of Nato but for the time until we are in the alliance,” he said.
