Ukraine has proved its stance and principled approach…and is ready to join NATO.

“I think now is the time to have a very honest, full-fledged, transparent conversation with Ukraine about our NATO prospects,” Head of the President’s Office Andriy Yermak said during an online conversation organized by the Atlantic Council on January 14….

He stressed that over the years of cooperation with the North Atlantic Alliance…Ukraine “has shown through its principles and stance that we are absolutely ready, capable of being a NATO member.”
