Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskyy on: Ukraine's President Volodymyr Zelensky has made an important announcement regarding NATO membership, noting the betrayal of NATO.
On the 14th day of the Russia-Ukraine war, the possibility of a ceasefire seems to be growing. It is also seen as a result of the efforts of the top leaders of Israel, India and France. As a result, both Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zhelensky and Russian President Vladimir Putin have turned to Maval. Zhelensky made an important announcement regarding NATO membership after the Russian military did not receive the expected help from the West and the Russian military came very close to Kiev.
Will Hutt leave Ukraine to join NATO?
Zhelensky has said he is ready to "compromise" with Russia, leaving behind the urge to join NATO. In an exclusive interview with the American TV channel ABC, Zelensky made an important statement. "Ukraine is not pushing for NATO membership," Zelensky said.
NATO membership is a major issue in the Russia-Ukraine conflict. Russian President Vladimir Putin has been uneasy about this from the beginning. Putin wants NATO not to set foot in neighboring countries.
'I am ready for discussion. "After we realized that NATO was not ready to accept us, I left this question long ago," he said.
"We do not want to be the president of a country that is begging for something on its knees," Zelensky said.
Regarding the Donetsk and Luhansk question, Zelensky said .
A day before the February 24 invasion of Ukraine, Putin unilaterally declared independence for Russia's two Russian-backed separatist regions of Donetsk and Luhansk. In response to a question, Zelensky said "our doors are wide open for discussion."
'I'm talking about security guarantees. I think that these territories, which have been temporarily occupied, have not been recognized by anyone other than Russia, and they are pseudo-nations. But we can certainly communicate on this issue and compromise on how these areas can move forward, "said Zelensky.
"It is important to me how the people living in these areas live and want to be a part of Ukraine. Citizens living in Ukraine love their country. That is why the question is more complicated than recognizing these nations as independent, "said Zelensky.
