Sooner or later Ukraine will join EU, NATO (Polish defence minister)

Sooner or later Ukraine is bound to become a member of the European Union and NATO, Poland’s Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Defence Tomasz Siemoniak said on Tuesday, commenting on Ukraine’s renouncing its off-bloc status.
 “We will see a time when Ukraine is in NATO and the European Union. Ukraine must comply with standards and Ukrainian society must support NATO membership,” he told the local ZET radio station.

He said he did not think Ukraine’s decision to renounce its off-bloc status might worsen the relations between that country and the West with Russia, since they “couldn’t be worse”.
  • Ukraine's membership in NATO is not being considered by the alliance amid Kiev's recent bid to drop its non-aligned status, a senior US administration official told RIA Novosti on Tuesday.
"NATO membership for Ukraine is not under consideration by the Alliance at this time, nor has Ukraine made such a request," the senior US administration official said.
The Ukrainian parliament passed a bill on Tuesday cancelling the country's non-aligned status and confirming Kiev's determination to join NATO. Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko welcomed the results of the vote.

"Any decision on potential NATO membership for Ukraine is one for NATO and Ukraine, and the United States supports the right of Ukrainians to make their own decisions about the future of their country free from any outside interference," the senior official underscored.
"We firmly support NATO's Open Door policy," the official went on by saying. "The Alliance, on a consensus basis, invites nations when they are ready and can contribute to security in the North Atlantic area."
Ukraine's non-aligned status was established by a 2010 law signed by then-president Viktor Yanukovych and stipulating that Ukraine would not seek membership of military-political alliances.......................http://sputniknews.com/military/20141223/1016165222.html


  1. Nato-Chef: Kein Beitritt Kiews zur Allianz ohne Reformen ...

    Die Ukraine wird laut dem Nato-Generalsekretär Jens Stoltenberg erst dann einen Beitritt zur Allianz beantragen können, wenn sie die dafür notwendigen Reformen abgeschlossen hat. Anschließend würden die Allianzmitglieder ihrerseits diesen Antrag prüfen müssen, hieß es.

    Das ukrainische Parlament hatte auf Vorschlag von Präsident Poroschenko ein Gesetz verabschiedet, das den Verzicht des Landes auf den blockfreien Status und eine Wiederaufnahme des Kurses auf den Nato-Beitritt vorsieht................http://de.ria.ru/politics/20141224/270266628.html

  2. Russie-Otan: "rupture complète" en cas d'adhésion de l'Ukraine ...

    L'adhésion de l'Ukraine à l'Alliance atlantique provoquerait la rupture complète des relations entre la Russie et l'Otan, a déclaré mercredi à RIA Novosti le vice-ministre russe de la Défense Anatoli Ivanov, commentant la décision du parlement ukrainien d'abandonner le statut hors bloc du pays.

    "Pour le moment, la décision du parlement ukrainien d'abandonner le statut hors bloc du pays ne constitue pas une menace pour la sécurité de la Russie, cette décision étant politique. Toutefois, si elle prend ultérieurement un sens militaire (adhésion à l'Otan), nous agirons de manière adéquate. Nous romprons complètement les relations avec l'Otan et il sera pratiquement impossible de les rétablir", a indiqué le vice-ministre...................http://fr.ria.ru/world/20141224/203300363.html

  3. Ukraine's move to join Nato dangerous: Russia ...

    Kiev's efforts to join Nato are dangerous for Ukraine itself and Europe's security, Russia's foreign minister Sergei Lavrov was quoted by Interfax news agency as saying on Thursday.

    "There are a few western countries that want to maintain the crisis in Ukraine and to maintain and boost the confrontation between Ukraine and Russia, including through provocative efforts towards membership in the Atlantic alliance," he said.
