Ukraine and Georgia Unanimously Admitted to NATO

Stoltenberg announced the admission of Ukraine and Georgia to NATO.

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg announced that the member countries of the North Atlantic Alliance decided to accept Ukraine and Georgia into NATO. This happened literally two days after the negotiations between Russia and the Alliance in Brussels failed, where the main point of Russian demands was NATO’s public refusal to expand at the expense of Ukraine and Georgia.

At the same time, Stoltenberg said that the official terms for the admission of Georgia and Ukraine to NATO have not yet been determined, but, taking into account the previous terms for the admission of countries to NATO membership, this could happen within the next 2-3 years.

“Ukraine has already requested to join and we have decided to work towards this by supporting its reforms, helping to modernize the armed forces to our standards. In 2008, we unanimously decided that Ukraine and Georgia would become (NATO) members, but we did not establish when exactly ,” NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said.

Stoltenberg’s statement is likely related to Russia’s attempt to demonstrate NATO’s readiness to deploy large NATO forces and, probably, missile weapons on the territory of Ukraine and Georgia. At the same time, it is quite obvious. that the Alliance does not want to see Georgia and Ukraine as its members because of the disputed territories.
