"Ukraine is creating a national system for the transition to NATO standards. The launch of such a system was presented this week by Olga Stefanyshyna, Deputy Prime Minister for European and Euro-Atlantic Integration. Ukraine is firmly and indestructible on the course of joining the Alliance. After all, as the President of Ukraine noted, NATO is the only one the way to end the war in the east of Ukraine, "the prime minister said.
Shmygal also added that Ukraine has already introduced 292 NATO standards and guidelines, or 19% of standardization agreements. And the launch of the national system for the transition to NATO standards will allow Ukraine to accelerate its path to full membership in the Alliance.
On April 9, the Russian Foreign Ministry said that Ukraine's accession to NATO would lead to a large-scale escalation in Donbas, and could also allegedly become a threat to Ukrainian statehood. The Russian Federation drew attention to the statement by the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky that joining NATO will help end the conflict in Donbas.
