Jul 12, 2023

NATO's decision on Ukraine's membership in the North Atlantic Alliance sends the wrong signal to Russia.

This was stated by the Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the Estonian Parliament, Marko Mihkelson, RBC-Ukraine reports citing his Twitter post.

"NATO's message to Ukraine is unfortunately mixed and may send the wrong signal to Russia," he wrote.

At the 2008 NATO summit in Bucharest, the allies promised that Ukraine would become part of the Alliance.

Yesterday, during the summit in Vilnius, Ukraine was allowed to join NATO without fulfilling the Membership Action Plan, which will significantly speed up the entire process.

At the same time, NATO countries promised to invite Ukraine to join the Alliance if it fulfills a number of conditions.

At the same time, President Volodymyr Zelensky said that the final communiqué did not contain any timeframe for inviting Ukraine to join NATO. In this regard, the head of state criticized the Alliance countries.
