Azarov predicted the timing of the entry of Ukraine into NATO
The issue of Ukraine’s accession to NATO will not be considered for at least the next 10 years. This forecast was made by the former Prime Minister of the country Mykola Azarov.
For this purpose, according to the politician, there are a lot of reasons, from the corruption of the Kiev authorities to unresolved conflict in the Donbass.
“First of all, we are talking about the disparity between standards of our armed forces to the standards of the Alliance. Another obstacle is the corruption of power. In addition, there are foreign policy problems. If Ukraine becomes a member of the bloc, it would be contrary to all promises of the Western partners of Russia. This will be followed by a complication of the international situation besides in a country that is in serious economic crisis, the conflict continues. No sane politician will actually encourage Ukraine to join NATO in the near future”, — said Mykola Azarov.
At this summit, NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said with confidence that Georgia will become a member of the Alliance. However, about Ukraine these words has not been told.
