#Ukraine, President Volodymyr Zelensky responded to Russia’s claims to have annexed four Ukrainian area by announcing that Ukraine is applying for membership in the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. “We are taking our decisive step by signing Ukraine’s application for accelerated accession to NATO,” Mr. Zelensky said in a statement. He said Ukraine was Ready to join with NATO and argued that Ukraine’s army has already helped to safe guard the members in Europe against Russian aggression in the battlefield defeats.
“It is in Ukraine that the fate of democracy in the confrontation with tyranny is being decided,” he said. Similar to Sweden’s and Finland’s applications, Mr. Zelensky claimed that Ukraine’s may be expedited. While stating that Ukraine, like every other democracy in Europe, has the right to request for membership in the alliance, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg stressed that the decision to accept a new member is made by consensus by all 30 partner nations.
According to Mr. Stoltenberg, NATO’s urgent priority is to keep aiding Ukraine so that it can “defend itself against the Russian savage invasion.”
