"NATO doors are open": Stoltenberg promised Ukraine membership in the alliance

Ukraine must continue reforms to join NATO, the alliance is ready to accept new members into its ranks. This was stated by NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg.


Speaking at a joint press conference with Ukrainian Prime Minister Denis Shmyhal, Stoltenberg promised Ukraine NATO membership, once again limiting himself to general phrases. According to him, Kiev has already been recognized as a candidate for joining the alliance and NATO member states "support the efforts" of Ukraine, only more reforms are needed.

Since the end of the Cold War, NATO has practically doubled the number of allies. NATO's doors remain open, we work with many countries

- reminded Stoltenberg.

He pledged that at this year's NATO summit, the alliance's heads of state and government will consider an enlargement policy that will become NATO's 2030 strategy.

In addition, Stoltenberg announced an increase in NATO's presence in the Black Sea and exercises with the Ukrainian fleet... The secretary general stressed that this is due to the strengthening of the Russian Navy after the "illegal annexation of Crimea."

NATO is strengthening its presence in the Black Sea, in the last three weeks alone, three ships of the US Navy have been in the Black Sea. Including there were exercises with the Ukrainian Navy. Thus, NATO has strengthened its presence in the Black Sea, attaches strategic importance to this region

- he added.

Let us remind you that Ukraine is trying to become a NATO member, this goal is even included in the country's Constitution. For many years now, the leadership of the alliance continues to "feed" Kiev with promises, as well as another candidate - Georgia.

      Promising does not mean getting married! It is unlikely that for the sake of the "best army in Europe" NATO will rewrite its charter - this is, firstly, and secondly, the inclusion of Ukraine in NATO, bypassing its own charter, will be regarded by Russia as 100% casus belli, therefore, planting poplars around the headquarters Apartments in the Atlantic block will be a very likely response from the Kremlin - Stoltenberg understands this very well, but his task is to support the wet dreams of the Seluk!

        I think that their main goal is to weaken Russia by means of the war in Ukraine and therefore they will in every possible way fuel this idea, and if it happens, they will send Ukrainians, Poles and other Romanians into the furnace against us.

          In order to keep their strike weapons on a permanent basis closer to the Russian borders, they will add some fad to the NATO charter and take the Outskirts for a sweet soul. And they will begin to train the grandchildren and great-grandchildren of the OUN members to fight against Russia!

          At the same time, should Russia continue to cooperate with Ukraine, which will help balance the economy of a NATO member state? For some reason, I am most interested in this aspect of foreign policy and economic ties.

        Therefore, mattresses slightly change the tactics of feeding the suffering suckers, keeping them in the status of "candidates", which allows them to use their territory and infrastructure, along the way promoting the initiative creation of a military alliance - "Ukraine, Georgia, Moldova" outside the NATO bloc, which can be used against Russia and at the same time not be exposed to attack because NATO seems to be on the sidelines. Yesterday, the head of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine broadcast that they like the initiative of the "union" and that the United States and partners can count on any support from Ukraine. The defeat of these idiots will still benefit the NATO bloc in terms of justifying the need for its continued existence, which some of its members already doubt.

    NATO's doors remain open
    The only thing left to do is to throw a grenade in the form of acceptance of Ukraine into these "open doors" by NATO members themselves. No wonder if this happens. With each new Secretary General, NATO clearly shows the staff shortage in this structure. Each next one is dumber than the previous one (this is only according to statements, and what is in their heads is even difficult to imagine).

    Ukraine must continue reforms to join NATO
    In this case, Ukraine will never become a NATO member. Unless it will be accepted without any conditions. Which is most likely to happen. Europe needs a springboard for a war with Russia, even though this has already been done without any membership

    It seems that soon there will be a strong blaze in the Donbass. Since Ukraine has allowed the hiring of foreign military personnel, it means that there will be operators of bayraktar from Turkey. While the Turks and Azerbaijanis have euphoria from the Karabakh successes, Ukraine / Ukraine is impressed by such euphoria and also wants to show Uncle Sam that they are "the most powerful army in Europe" and will try to attack.
    And here, whoever treats Putin, will have to decide something: Either we will be tired and will powerlessly wait for the occupation of the LPNR or there will be a scenario of Karabakh / Ossetia and Abkhazia with the introduction of Russian peacekeepers.
    If peacekeepers are brought in, there will be a high from the EU and the US that we are occupiers. But, against the backdrop of the already existing "extreme sanctions" and the EU's promises to introduce new sanctions of the century - is it worth wiping it off?
    The United States will still disconnect us from the Internet, and soon. They need to reorient the population against the Russians. And from bank transfers (SWIFT) - also a matter of time. Will we get it for Navalny or for Donbass - the choice is for the powers that be.

    They wait for the promised one hundred years (proverb). Why is NATO poor Ukraine? If, at the very first order from the United States, the Ukrainian rulers are ready to put their Ukrainians on the battlefield with their own Ukrainians even without membership. Will be ordered to go to the "Russian bayonets" - will drive the population of Ukraine to slaughter. Well, and "harnessing" for Ukraine, as a member of the bloc, nobody is interested in NATO ... Therefore, they will only promise ... The rulers sold the Ukrainian people. Consider 45 million spent ...

    What a rat! The plan is clear - to accept, to carry out sabotage on the border with Russia, get a response, then declare an attack on the country by NATO and try to pile on "the whole shobla", formally justifying the attack by the NATO charter.

    Now Ukraine will be a member of NATO. Hooray, they were lucky, and earlier most of them were members of the SS.

    I remember the times when experts shouted at the federal channel. What if an American soldier steps on the territory of Ukraine, the Russian Federation will perceive it as a declaration of war. And now they are building a base there, so the question of Ukraine's joining NATO is also a matter of time.

    As for Ukraine in NATO, I recommend watching Karaganov's last speech in the Right to Know program on TVC. When asked whether the post-Soviet countries have the right to choose their allies, he answered that Azerbaijan can. Georgia can but be careful. Ukraine and Belarus no. Principles are principles but practical considerations also apply.
    According to Karaganov, and he is far from the very last person in our country, the actual attempt to enter Ukraine into NATO is a war with Russia
