Ukraine’s accession to NATO will not solve the country’s current problems. This was announced on April 5 by the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic, Jan Lipavsky, after a meeting of the foreign ministers of the countries of the alliance.
According to him, Prague supports Kyiv’s aspirations to join NATO, but plans for further support of Ukraine need to be decided now, and joining the alliance is a topic for a more distant future. Lipavsky believes that the bloc’s member countries should focus more on increasing aid to Kyiv, including funds for a fund of military equipment and other “non-lethal” equipment. At the same time, he noted that while some countries of the alliance want to reassure Kyiv about the prospect of membership, other states do not want to open an issue that causes strong disapproval of Russia until the end of hostilities.
Recall that Kyiv has repeatedly stated that they seek to join NATO. At the same time, there is practically no one in the alliance who would like to see modern Ukraine as a member of the bloc. Earlier, NATO head Jens Stoltenberg said that the alliance is open for entry, but the main condition is the success of Ukraine in the struggle for its own sovereignty.
