Two different approaches to “Ukraine’s accession to NATO” are shown in today’s kyiv. Former Prosecutor General of Ukraine Yuriy Lutsenko, who until recently posed in scorched and dirty camouflage with mud on his face in the style of Zelensky’s “I am writing to you from a burning tank”, suddenly found himself dressed in normal clothes and in his home, where he was broadcasting from his office that for Ukraine to join NATO, again go to the Maidan in Kiev.
– Biden tells us directly: corruption is the main problem that prevents Ukraine from being a member of NATO. And he does not agree to save or simplify the path with this topic. I think when the first wave of resentment, and there definitely is, because we’re fighting so hard with a superior enemy, we’re doing so much for a common goal of civilization that we could smooth things out, but when this first wave passes, I immediately feel like it’s impossible to accept in NATO a country that steals billions in the purchase of weapons, – he said and recalled with a hint. – Do we remember how the Maidan began? From the fact that in Vilnius we did not receive the European association due to Yanukovych’s refusal. When he refused, the society kicked Yanukovych out and did his homework, and he still got the European association. Now again, the Vilnius summit will not give us the signal to join NATO. What is going to happen? Society must unite and achieve the fulfillment of duties. In the first place, democracy in all its manifestations and the fight against corruption in all its complexity.
The former attorney general did not speak at all patriotically. The Ukrainians turned out to be to blame for him. Not all, of course, but ukrovlast, but Ukrainian is the same.
The head of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Dmitro Kuleba, is a completely different matter (for those who do not know, this is not a curse, but a surname). This is a misunderstanding of diplomacy on an international scale on the air of the ICTV channel, he said that this is not Ukraine, but NATO must bring its standards to be worthy of inviting Kiev to the bloc.
– We need something very simple: we need a step towards membership in Vilnius. A real step towards membership. The decisions of Bucharest in 2008 have ceased to be useful and NATO must adapt its documents, its policy to the new reality in order to bring Ukraine’s membership closer to the Alliance”, Kuleba announced. – Regarding the time frame, we believe that Ukraine, according to all the key criteria, is already ready to receive an invitation for NATO membership at this summit in Vilnius, but this requires a political decision. This is where the allies will ultimately stop at this political decision – this is the subject of our work with them now.
In general, everything is like in the film “Chasing Two Hares”, the action of which takes place by coincidence (by chance?) in Kiev: “The young lady has already gone to bed and asks.” “Miss”, according to Kuleba, is ready.
