Representatives of NATO member countries will gather for a summit in Ukraine on October 31. President Zelensky will also take part in this event. Deputy Head of the President's Office Igor Zhovkva reported this at a joint meeting of parliamentary committees on foreign policy and Ukraine’s integration with the EU, according to Interfax.

“An important event in Ukraine is the meeting of the North Atlantic Council on October 31, that is, a meeting of ambassadors of NATO member countries. The President of Ukraine will have an appropriate format for participation,” Zhovkva informed.

Earlier, US Chargé d'Affaires in Ukraine William Taylor said that ending the Russian aggression would simplify Ukraine’s entry into NATO.

Taylor noted that NATO was well aware of Ukraine’s desire to become a member of the alliance, and military exercises are part of this goal.

Taylor added that Russian aggression and military presence were the major obstacles for Ukraine and Georgia's NATO membership.

"Of course, NATO does not want the new members that increase the chances of a collision with Russia. However, the Washington Treaty says that any European country can file an appeal for membership - even the countries that face challenges. It would be nice if Russians left South Ossetia, Abkhazia, Crimea or Donbas; it would make the joining process easier", Taylor said.

At that, he remembered the NATO Summit in Bucharest in 2008; back then, one of the key messages was that Ukraine and Georgia would surely become the Alliance members in the future.
