“In order to do this, Ukraine needs tremendous progress - in technology, in modern weapons ... But, again, corruption, eternal diseases. If you recover from them, at least a little, and start developing, NATO will say: we need such a country as Ukraine, let's make an exception regarding Crimea or regarding some other territories, and agree," said Tabach.
He noted that it was necessary to work so that NATO wanted to accept Ukraine into its bloc.
Moreover, according to him, over the past five years, Ukraine has already managed to achieve a lot, including in the military sphere, so "everything is possible."
He noted that it is not necessary for the country to be a full-fledged member of NATO, it is possible to be a member of the Alliance for some specific points.
In order for Ukraine to properly ensure its development and security, the doors to the European Union and NATO must remain open for it. This was announced by the Senate of Poland MP Stanislav Karchevsky at the opening of the tenth session of the Inter-Parliamentary Assembly of the Verkhovna Rada, the Seimas of Lithuania, the Sejm and the Senate of Poland "Security. Development. Democracy. Strong together" on June 7 in Kyiv.
"The experience of the Baltic countries and Poland shows that only the Alliance can provide security, and development can only be given by the EU, so the doors to these organizations should remain open for Ukraine," said Karchevsky.
He drew attention to the historical experience of Lithuania, Poland, and Ukraine, which suggests that countries should act together on security issues.
