The issue of Ukraine's accession to NATO is obliged to be solved only once to establish relations Between the member countries of the Commonwealth and Russia, said former adviser to ex-Chancellor Helmut Kohl Horst Teltschik.
"Even if the Ukrainian government will say" we wish to become a NATO member ", to make a decision will only NATO and Ukraine as long as far from becoming a member of the Commonwealth. I recommend not to do anything with Ukraine, until no progress in cooperation with Russia ", - has noticed the German politician in the conversation RT, RIA " Novosti ".
Thus, despite the existing conflict Between Moscow and NATO, to say about the fact that there is a war, ? is "crazy," said Teltschik. Also, in the opinion of the analyst, an important problem is that Europe does not know what he desires, and this gives the United States the ability to manage it. Teltschik stresses that the main thing for global geopolitical players ? to restore a constructive relationship, " think about cooperation and dialogue at all levels ", But as long as to solve this Question is not easy. However, on the first day of the week the Ministry of foreign Affairs of Ukraine announced the opening of the Kiev office of NATO. August 25, the Ukrainian government approved the first five agreements on the enforcement of the military power of the country to the standards of the North Atlantic Commonwealth. The Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine on December 23 last year made changes to 2 of the law of the country, renouncing non-aligned status of the country. However, experts believe that Ukraine will not be able to qualify for membership in NATO in the next 20 years. In addition, on 6 February, the adviser to the Minister of defence of Ukraine Alexander Danilyuk acknowledged that his country is unlikely to be accepted into the Alliance, and therefore should lead their own "Union security" in the post-Soviet space. The day before the head of the French Republic Francois Hollande has specifically said that his country remains " would not want to see Ukraine in NATO ".
