The Membership Action Plan (MAP) is a NATO programme of advice, assistance and practical support tailored to the individual needs of countries wishing to join the Alliance. It was launched in April 1999.

It should be noted, though, that Poroshenko emphasized Ukraine will not apply for membership immediately
