Duda: NATO supports Ukraine, but does not want to wage war with Russia

Jul 10, 2024

Polish President Andrzej Duda said that Ukraine should become a NATO member after the war, as the Alliance does not want to be drawn into a war with Russia.

He said this before a meeting of the Euro-Atlantic Council in Washington, D.C., according to a Yevropeiska Pravda correspondent.

According to the Polish president, the discussion is only about the moment when Ukraine will be accepted into NATO, not whether it will be accepted at all.


"The decision of Ukrainian society is respected here, which determines whether it wants to belong to the East or to the free West. Today this voice is clear and distinct - they want to belong to the Western community," he said.

"Today there is only one problem on this path, which is that the war must end because Ukraine must be accepted into NATO as a full member," Duda said.

And this, he said, entails the automatic application of Article 5 and NATO's involvement in the war.
