Political scientist Gevorg Mirzayan, in an interview with RT, spoke about the prospects for relations between NATO and Ukraine.
The expert believes that the very discussion of the topic of Ukraine’s membership in the military alliance is beneficial to President Volodymyr Zelensky. At the same time, according to Mirzayan, this issue will not advance further than discussions.
The political scientist is sure that Europe and the United States do not need a new ally in the form of Ukraine. Including due to unresolved internal territorial conflicts. The expert believes that since the Budapest summit in 2008, Ukraine has not come one step closer to joining NATO.
Earlier, the Russian Foreign Ministry said that in the coming months, NATO could begin to build up forces near the Russian Federation under the pretext of the situation in Ukraine. Also, the press secretary of the President of the Russian Federation Dmitry Peskov, in an interview with CNN, said that Russia sees how NATO is gradually invading Ukraine with its infrastructure, weapons and training of the Ukrainian military.
