Defense Minister Oleksiy Reznikov hopes that the North Atlantic Alliance summit in Vilnius in July will more clearly outline Ukraine's membership prospects and military support until the war with Russia ends.
According to Voice of America, Reznikov said this in a video address to the participants of a panel discussion at the Atlantic Council think tank on Friday.
The head of the Defense Ministry told the panelists about seven points that, in his opinion, should be included in the final document of the Vilnius NATO summit, emphasizing a clearer membership perspective.
"The Alliance should offer Ukraine a clear membership algorithm by the end of 2023," the minister said. According to Reznikov, before Ukraine joins the Alliance, it must provide security guarantees.
In addition, the minister expects NATO leaders to support the "peace formula" first announced by the Ukrainian president at the G20 summit in November.
