Stoltenberg named the main condition for the admission of Ukraine and Georgia to NATO

At the summit of the heads of the foreign affairs agencies of the NATO countries, the question of the possibility of a new expansion of the military bloc was raised. After the admission to it of Montenegro and Macedonia, which changed its name to North Macedonia for this, Georgia and Ukraine are on the agenda. Secretary General Stoltenberg was asked under what conditions these two countries will join NATO.


During his speech, Jens Stoltenberg named the main condition. According to him, Georgia and Ukraine will be able to join NATO only if this accession is approved by all, without exception, the countries of the North Atlantic Alliance.

Stoltenberg:

That is why I cannot yet name the exact time when this can happen.

At the same time, the NATO Secretary General added that the possibility for Georgia and Ukraine to join NATO was announced at the Bucharest summit in 2008.

Secretary General of the military bloc:

But even then the deadlines were not determined. And now all allies should consider it expedient to expand NATO through the admission of Georgia and Ukraine. They need to work out a consensus on how prepared these countries are to join.

At Stoltenberg, they tried to clarify which NATO countries today are expressing their position against the admission of Kiev and Tbilisi to the alliance. Stoltenberg did not directly answer this question, noting only that "a lot of work is underway, a discussion is underway, different positions are being expressed." Also, instead of a direct answer, the secretary general of the alliance noted that "everyone considers Georgia and Ukraine to be respected partners in the Black Sea region."

Let us recall that earlier the position in NATO was unambiguous: not to admit belligerent countries, as well as countries with unresolved territorial issues. As you know, both Ukraine and Georgia have territorial claims to their neighbors.

Against this background, Kiev and Tbilisi constantly declare that they are ready to join NATO even now.

    Hungarians, first of all. They will not be allowed to "squeeze out" Transcarpathia, so they will put spokes in the wheels.
    Maybe later the Magyars will be "pressed", but the process of possible accession will be delayed.

      Hungarians, when joining NATO, officially confirmed the absence of territorial claims to neighbors - this is included in the procedure. And now they do not officially claim Transcarpathia.

        Officially, THEY do not claim. But the Hungarians of Transcarpathia make claims. And the Transcarpathians are definitely against their Ukrainian neighbors.

            There is no money for the referendum. But even if they did, then all the same "the result will be as it should be"

              This is doubtful. The main NATO functionaries are quite satisfied with the existing status of these non-contenders as "priority candidates" who, even without any membership, are ready to provide all of their territory and available scarce resources, despite the fact that the bloc does not bear any obligations to them. An analogue of this "entry" is Turkey, which for half a century has been hovering around in the EU dressing-room as a candidate for the Euro-association, fulfilling some whims of Brussels for compliance with standards, but has never become Euro-associated.

                I assume that in the near future they will press on us with a vengeance. In some ways you are right about the hanging status. This also applies to our foreign policy towards Donbass.

              If Ukraine is admitted to NATO, and the war in Donbass does not stop, then according to the NATO treaties and charter, a war should begin between Russia and NATO countries.

                So we do not participate in the war in Donbass (this is legally, and even in practice, our state does not conduct wax operations there). But on the part of Ukraine, they believe that they are conducting an operation to "restore sovereignty and constitutional legality." This NATO is very beneficial - we will not be able to intervene if Ukraine is admitted to NATO. And this is one of the types of pressure on us. I believe that we missed the moment of guaranteeing non-NATO membership by not cutting this "Gordian knot"

                  If Ukraine and all NATO countries believe that Russia is at war, then they will provide Ukraine with any military assistance. All people living in the Lao PDR and having Russian citizenship become non-combatants. So before Ukraine joins NATO, Russia must resolve the issue with these republics.

                  In 2016, Ukraine adopted a law stating that it is at war with Russia. So, legally, Ukraine is a belligerent state and cannot be a member of NATO. It's just that Russia did not come to the war. lol

                So this is what stops the darling of Stoltenberg and his puppeteers in cowboy hats. Accept Ukraine and Georgia into NATO and no one will be saved, should something happen. These pseudo-states, on the other hand, have the only goal - to avenge their own sins on Russia, which means to recapture / recapture what was previously wounded, that is, war. In this case, timid Georgians and broad-minded Svidomites who want to fight will end quickly and the Europeans will have to harness, but how? if they themselves have solid soda with gomorrhoids.
                So you think 30 times wink by the number of NATO countries, but is it worth it?

                  Even children know what happened before Georgia's annexation to Russia. But Roii accepted Georgia as an equal, even preserved their nobility, preserved their nation and identity. Ukraine never existed at all, and before the annexation, except for small hetman communities, the entire territory was part of the "wild field", and the rest was captured by the Turks, Poles, Lithuanians and Austrians. Russia has also preserved its Ukrainian nation and identity.
                  This is why they are taking revenge on Russia. They take revenge for the fact that they were not assimilated, destroyed and made slaves.

          Hungarians in Transcarpathia make up 12 percent of the total population. Transcarpathians are 80 percent Ukrainians, 12 percent Hungarians and 8 percent all the rest.
          In reality, Hungarians make up a significant part of the population only in a small area in the Beregovoye area.

    Also, instead of a direct answer, the secretary general of the alliance noted that "everyone considers Georgia and Ukraine to be respected partners in the Black Sea region."


    They are concubines, not partners, and without any rights and without obligations on the part of NATO ...

    Hungarians, when joining NATO, officially confirmed the absence of territorial claims to neighbors - this is included in the procedure. And now they do not officially claim Transcarpathia.

    Tell this to the Turks, they also had no claims to Greece when they joined.

      The Turks have no territorial claims against the Greeks. Cyprus, over which the conflict is, is a separate state, not Greece.

    That is why I cannot yet name the exact time when this can happen.

    But these "brothers" will have to answer for EVERYTHING before Russia soon.

    No, they do not have any of their neighbors.

    They will join NATO when it is beneficial to NATO.

    Hmmm. First-class divorce from Jens Stoltenberg. You wait, sooner or later we will include you in NATO. The fact that this shameful NATO for the population poses a much more significant threat, since in the event of a war Europe will not suffer, the war will be waged in Ukraine and the Baltics, this is a trifle. There is no question of Georgia. There are no prospects for NATO. The benefits are not even zero, but negative

    How long can we discuss this topic? Ukraine and Georgia will fall into NATO, precisely when NATO decides to exacerbate relations with the Russians, to the level of a military conflict.

        I think that if NATO is confident in their victory and will be able to neutralize Russia's retaliatory strike, the question will even arise whether or not to start a war. An aggressive and offensive bloc hiding behind fables about freedom, democracy, and so on.

    earlier, the position in NATO was unambiguous: not to admit belligerent countries, as well as countries with unresolved territorial issues

    So it was before, but now everything has changed. NATO urgently needs to reach most of the Russian border. After Ukraine and Georgia, it will be Kazakhstan's turn. And then ... This is naturally my IMHO.

        I agree. The USSR was surrendered by internal traitors. And Gorbachev is far from alone. Party elite and executive and .... I wanted a sweet rich life.
        And now no one wants to fight - critical losses are possible, and then all gas pipelines will be damaged, but how to pump oil and gas, and who will do it? If the local population goes to the partisans or is destroyed? Then what's the point?
        Better - to slowly ruin everything, not to let it develop and swing, swing, swing ...

        This is the third world war ...

    There is hardly any chance for Ukraine to join NATO in the coming years.
    Chaos and civil war, as well as a split within the population - why does Europe and the United States need such a headache?
    It is easier to continue using it as it is now - against the "dangerous" Russia.
    Feed. Promise. Propose road maps towards the European Union and NATO ...
    And if that - you can always distance yourself. But from Ukraine already NATO - it will not work.
    But no one wants to take responsibility for an unpredictable Ukraine.
    Georgia, if not for Abkhazia and Ossetia, would probably have already joined NATO. But not a fact ...

    In order for Georgia and Ukraine not to aspire to NATO, one big neighbor of these countries must stop chopping off their territories. Everything - nothing else is needed. Russians do not have any closer peoples than Ukrainians (and Belarusians). And Georgians are historically unforgettable in character. They will return the seized territories and everything will settle down. And so naturally - you can run away to hell from a mad leper with a vigorous club

    Georgia and Ukraine are doomed forever to stomp in front of the closed doors of NATO. The road is closed for them. Georgia is a poor country with big problems in territorial disputes. Ukraine is generally a monkey with a grenade, and the check has already been pulled out. Some statements by Ukrainian nationalists that they are ready to blow up the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant and make a nuclear nightmare in Europe, cleaner than Chernobyl, in order to only annoy Russia, immediately cool the ardor of those who are ready to accept Ukraine into NATO even now. Even the owners of NATO, the United States, openly declared that they did not see any prospects for these countries.

    There will be against the leading countries such as Germany, France, Italy and so on. They perfectly understand what kind of hemorrhoids they will get because of Ukraine, which did not rattle them. It's just that the policy now is, to poison the Ukrainians on us, otherwise they don't need hicks for nothing.
