De facto, Ukraine is already a member of NATO. However de jure Alliance may not be readyto take our country.

Aleksey Arestovich, adviser to the head of the President’s Office, stated this during the broadcast on the YouTube channel “Feygin Live”.

Thoughts of Arestovich

We made one more “knight’s move”. We have become the 13th country of Trimoria. This is access to money, to transport, to security at sea, to infrastructure. And 12 countries of Trimorye are members of the EU. That is almost half of the EU countries. This means that our integration with the EU has gone much further than everyone is currently assessing. Secondly, you need to understand that we are de facto members of the NATOh,” he said.

At the same time, Arestovich noted that he “has skepticism about whether NATO is ready to accept Ukraine.” However, I noticed that even being a candidate for the EU actually gives us access to security programs that in one way or another relate to NATO.

The vast majority of EU countries are in NATO. The status of a candidate for the EU is not Filkin’s diploma. An EU candidate means access to EU programs and EU money. I can say that, according to experts, most of the roads and many other infrastructure facilities were built by the Poles when they were candidates for the EU. They received fixed funds and began to implement basic programs. This is access to many possibilities. This includes security issues.“, – Arestovich reassured the Ukrainians.
