The NATO summit, which will take place on June 14 in Brussels, will be held without Ukraine's participation, but the agenda includes the question of Ukraine's possible receipt of a NATO Membership Action Plan (MAP). Deputy Head of the President's Office Igor Zhovkva said this in a commentary to Interfax-Ukraine.

"The current NATO summit on June 14 will be held without the participation of the Alliance partner countries, which, in particular, Ukraine belongs to. Only member countries will take part in this summit. The main thing for us is the content of the summit on June 14. Here we can be confident that the topic of Ukraine will certainly be discussed, "he said.

Zhovkva recalled that the discussion of Ukrainian topics at the NATO summit was previously discussed by "the closest partners in NATO, namely the United States, Canada, Germany, France and Poland." And he noted that the decisions of the summit, in particular regarding Ukraine, will be recorded in the general final document.

He also stressed that the NATO summit not the first time will take place without the involvement of partner countries. There were such cases in 2019 in London and Strasbourg in 2009.

Earlier the President of Poland Andrzej Duda said that at the NATO summit in June sides will discuss a roadmap for Ukraine's entry into the Alliance.
