NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltberg confirmed, on Monday, that the alliance summit scheduled for tomorrow will take a decision to expand military support to Ukraine and bring it closer to NATO membership, while the Kremlin warned that Ukraine’s accession to NATO would have “very negative” repercussions on European security.
Stoltenberg stressed, during a press conference with the Lithuanian president, that NATO will defend every inch of the territory of the member states.
He also stressed that the NATO summit will discuss the course of Ukraine’s accession, and pointed out that Ukrainian President Zelensky will join the NATO-Ukraine Council meeting.
This comes as the Kremlin announced, on Monday, that Ukraine’s acquisition of NATO membership will have “very negative” repercussions on European security, ahead of a NATO summit to be held in Vilnius this week.
Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said, “Ukraine’s membership in NATO will have very negative repercussions for the entire security structure in Europe.” He added that it would also constitute an “absolute danger, a threat to our country” that would require a “serious response”.
NATO leaders meet on Tuesday and Wednesday in Lithuania for a summit that is expected to be dominated by the alliance’s response to Russia’s military intervention in Ukraine and Kiev’s request to join the alliance.
The United States, Britain, Germany and France are seeking to submit a joint proposal to establish a framework to support Ukraine militarily within the security guarantees that Ukraine will receive.
The four countries discussed the proposal with Kiev and allies in NATO, the European Union and the Group of Seven.
Politico newspaper stated that the proposal is based on the establishment of an umbrella for all countries wishing to provide military aid to Ukraine on an ongoing basis, with different details from one country to another.
And according to what was reported by the American newspaper, the goal of the Western powers is to announce the framework of this umbrella during the annual summit of NATO tomorrow.
