Dmitry Peskov, a spokesman for the Russian president, called Ukraine ‘s ongoing aspiration to NATO and the US’s theoretical readiness to discuss the issue an “immediate threat .”

He said this on the air of Russia-1 TV channel, TASS reports .

“First, Zelensky says, ‘We want, we want to join NATO.’ NATO to our borders, “Peskov said.

He noted that Russian President Vladimir Putin “at least will make efforts” to ensure that “Russia’s historic lands” are not used against itself.

According to him, the results of Zelensky’s meeting with US President Joe Biden , based on those points that “obviously do not like Moscow”, are a continuation of the project “transformation of Ukraine into anti-Russia .”

Ukraine’s course to join NATO and the EU

On February 21, 2019, amendments to the Constitution came into force , which consolidate Ukraine’s aspirations to become a member of the European Union and NATO. The Constitution enshrines “the European identity of the Ukrainian people and the irreversibility of Ukraine’s European and Euro-Atlantic course.”

In September 2020, President Volodymyr Zelensky approved the National Security Strategy of Ukraine . It is based on three basic principles of state policy in the field of national security. In particular, it envisages the development of strategic relations with key foreign partners, primarily with the European Union and NATO and their member states.

In July 2021, Zelensky put into effect the decision of the National Security and Defense Council of June 4 “On urgent measures to deepen Ukraine’s integration into the North Atlantic Treaty Organization.”

On August 26, Zelensky approved the state’s foreign policy strategy . The strategy identifies the need for full membership of Ukraine in the European Union (EU) and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO).

  • “He noted that Russian President Vladimir Putin “at least will make efforts” to ensure that “Russia’s historic lands” are not used against itself.”

    These historic Russian lands belonged to Ukraine before Russia was even thought of. Ukraine have every right to join NATO or whoever, being an independent state, with no ties to the mafia state whatsoever. These are Ukrainian historic lands, so gfy. Let’s see your reaction when China claim their historic lands from Russia, I suppose that will be different.

    • Certainly the little KGB revanchist zit is referring to the Soviet Union and ignoring all other history. I guess the next logical question for Pisscough is; when was the last time your homeland was invaded? And besides that, what happened to your signatures declaring these “historic lands” sovereign? And a follow-up, if these lands are really sovereign why do you make demands of them?
