Latvian Foreign Minister: I believe that there is no territorial dispute between Russia and Ukraine, Ukraine can be admitted to NATO

61

The NATO countries are discussing the issue of the possibility of Ukraine's admission to the military bloc. Recall that the other day, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy announced a "long wait" for an invitation to NATO and the European Union. NATO clearly had problems with these "wishes" of the official Kiev, which even prescribed in the main law the entry into these international organizations. The fact is that the charter of the North Atlantic Alliance does not prescribe the admission of countries with unresolved territorial problems. Ukraine has such problems: it still considers Crimea to be its territory, and also has no control over part of Donbass.


The entire NATO bloc sees the problem of Ukraine joining the bloc, but the Latvian Foreign Ministry proposes to “consider the option”. Thus, the head of the Latvian Foreign Ministry, Edgars (Edgars) Rinkevichs (Rinkevichs), who is a graduate of the US National Defense University, said that Ukraine "can become a NATO member even in the absence of control over Crimea and Donbass."

Calling these territories "occupied", the Latvian minister said that the NATO bloc could take Ukraine into its membership, since "the international community still recognizes Crimea and Donbass as Ukrainian."

Rinkevich:

Until 2007, Latvia also had an unresolved territorial dispute with Russia. In 1945, they took part of the land from us and added them to the RSFSR. Estonian friends had similar problems. But we became NATO members.

The Latvian minister says that Georgia and Ukraine can also become them.

Rinkevich:

If we talk about South Ossetia and Abkhazia, then their independence, apart from Russia, is recognized by only a few countries of the world.

According to the minister, this is quite enough for Georgia to be admitted to the North Atlantic military bloc too.

Latvian Foreign Minister:

Crimea is, of course, different история... But. I will repeat myself. I believe that there is no territorial dispute between Russia and Ukraine. UN recognizes Crimea as Ukrainian. And Ukraine can be admitted to NATO.

At the same time, Rinkevich added that "we still need consultations in the expert environment of the alliance."

    After all, Latvia also had an unresolved territorial dispute with Russia.

    I invite everyone to look at the comment of the representative of the Baltic paper political tiger from a slightly different angle - could it be that he speaks from someone else's leaf? That he is voicing a new possible vector for the development of the conflict in Ukraine? That the United States through it declares that it is ready to consider for itself this option of escalation?
    I understand that the United States should be aware that in this case, first of all, its soldiers will die, but there is another option - joining NATO and a hard freeze of the conflict. Something like the conflicts Cyprus-Turkey, Great Britain-Argentina.
    But the worst thing that this will bring for us is NATO's significant approach to our borders on an official basis.
    In principle, the United States should understand that the distraught Ukrainian neo-Nazis can still provoke a conflict at any moment and lead Russia and the United States to a global war, but given the degradation of politics and politicians in the United States, I would not rule out such an option.

        Exactly. This is the same old trick. We can say - the application of the Overton window principle. Initially throws the most delusional idea through the third party. Then we begin to discuss it in the style of "let's hypothetically discuss such a step, since our partners have proposed," we bring up supporters like Poland and other vassals, push together on those who disagree and look at the opposite side - suddenly they will give a niche to slip into. And in the end we get an initially unacceptable, but we formed, the solution we need.
        And the consequences - I'm not sure that in the modern American administration, someone is now thinking further than one electoral cycle.

          Allow me to add on my own.
          Such actions still form public opinion, no matter the majority or minority, and then through the controlled media such an idea is conveyed - despite the fact that such decisions contradict the charter, the people ask, therefore, as an exception, we are going to violate the rules.
          As a result, the necessary decision was made according to the "dermokratic" principles.

      It seems to me that as soon as the representative of the Outskirts goes to sign the documents of entry, the eastern border of the Outskirts will immediately follow him and reunite in a single impulse with the western one somewhere in the region of Moldova.

    I do not understand how there is no dispute. The Ukrovermacht should be located on the western bank of the Dnieper, and the western bank should be controlled by our shunting inter-troop maneuver groups. Then there will definitely not be a dispute over territories.

    Well, it means NATO does not consider the claims of Latvia and Estonia justified, and the territories on which the limitrophes are open are considered Russian.
