According to Stoltenberg, Ukraine’s accession to NATO “does not shine” after the defeat.

Alliance Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said that if Ukraine is defeated in a conflict with Russia, then discussing its membership in NATO will not make sense.

“The most important thing today is to ensure that Putin does not win and that Ukraine will remain as a sovereign state, because otherwise, if Ukraine does not have the opportunity to exist as an independent sovereign democratic state in Europe, there will be no subject to discuss its membership at all,” he said.

According to Stoltenberg, NATO should demonstrate unity in support of the Kiev authorities in this situation.
