Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba has said that Ukraine can become a NATO member only when the three capitals of the alliance member states change their attitude towards Ukraine, Zerkalo Nedeli reports.
Dmytro Kuleba said this in an interview with a Latvian news portal.
"According to my calculations, Ukraine will join the Alliance when the three capitals of NATO member states will change their view of relations with Ukraine, finally starting to perceive Ukraine as an independent and independent state, not as a supplement to Russia. But I know for a fact that when these capitals change their perceptions and no longer view their relations with Ukraine through the prism of bilateral relations with Russia, the situation will change dramatically. However, until this point of view is changed, NATO will only open windows for us to cooperate with Ukraine, but the doors for us to join them will be closed," the head of the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry said.
The head of the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry did not specify which capitals he was referring to, referring to the undiplomatic nature of such an answer.
