NATO calls its official’s statement on Ukraine’s territorial concessions ‘mistake’

16.08.2023 20:35NATO has called a statement by Alliance official Stian Jenssen that Ukraine could cede part of its territories in exchange for joining the Alliance a “mistake”.NATO press service gave such a comment to Radio Liberty, Ukrinform reports.

Earlier on Wednesday, in a comment to the VG Norwegian media outlet, Jenssen clarified that his statement “was part of a larger discussion about possible future scenarios in Ukraine.””I shouldn’t have said that. It was a mistake,” he said.

The day before, the media spread the statement by Stian Jenssen, the chief of staff of NATO Secretary General, who admitted that Ukraine could become a NATO member if it made territorial concessions to the Russian Federation.

According to him, discussions about the future status of Ukraine in the context of the Alliance after the war are already ongoing, among other things, they include options with Kyiv’s renunciation of part of the territory.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine reacted to this statement, calling such conversations absolutely unacceptable.



  1. THE CONCESSION PLANS ARE OFF COURSE IN NATO at the table, but it was a ‘mistake’ to make it now already public.

  2. BS. This was no mistake at all. Even the most junior NATO official would never have come out with a statement like this. I assume Stoltenberg has something to do with this, seeing as Jenssen is a fellow Norwegian.

    • Absolutely right. Spokesmen and Chiefs of Staff do not just blurt out opinions, they give readouts of meetings and discussions. Obviously this has been talked about and probably with Biden’s back channels like before. John Kerry loves doing that and he did it back in 2014 trying to be a fucking hero.

  3. Ukraine is not a NATO member yet, and already NATO is trying to influence its future. As I always say, Ukraine doesn’t need NATO, especially after mafia land’s defeat, but NATO would be far stronger with Ukraine.
