Ukraine pressures Nato to speed path to membership

Ukraine’s president has called on Nato to back a membership action plan (MAP) for the country as a formal step towards joining the military alliance, arguing that such a “signal” would deter Russian aggression.

You keep speculating about the clown launching an attack on Donbass. You have no clue whatsoever about Ukraine. Just like all the ” experts” in the west. Ukrainians around Kyiv and east of it are more russian than the russians themselves. For Russia, Ukraine is part of their motherland. They will never attack it. When Lavrov says Ukraine would be “destroyed” what he means is that the people in east Ukraine would rather secede than attack their realtives in Donbass and Russia. Then Ukraine would break apart. Also, you keep talking about “reforms” These are no “reforms”. They are blank… Read more »

The KIEV side laid mine fields. They are blown up by their own incompetence.

I agree with what you say, but the Bandera guns for hire are effectively the US/UK/Israeli supported ‘ISIS’ in Ukraine and they effectively keep the majority subdued.

No, make no mistake of it. Lavrov means ‘destroyed’ in the biblical sense. And a better candidate for such destruction than Ukranaziland there’s not to be. God’s speed to it.

What more of an excuse do they need than a Ukrainian attack on the Donbass and its total and final violation of a unanimous passing of UNSC Res. 2202, incorporating Minsk II into the law of the land?

Christ, the US has used such UNSC Res. red lines dozens of times as an excuse, sometimes fabricated, sometimes not. This time it’ll be real and no argument about it.

Ukraine is exactly how the neolibs/neocons want the conflict in Ukraine ,a unstable open wound in Russia’s back yard,open war would be far too costly in lives and also would cause instability in the West,as hardly anyone in say America could find Ukraine on a map,people would wonder why they are spending fortunes and risking lives when people are fighting not to be thrown out their homes,the instabilities in the US as pointed out by China are very clear and evident,also Ukraine joining a destructive aggressive alliance like NATO would be a step too far for Russia..

Mercouris does not have the guts to report the “RONA SCAM”

And he knows well.

In that sense he has many peers, all of them are BENT JOURNALISTS.

Zelensky is a prize fool if he thinks that any “signal” from NATO would try stop the Russians from protecting as they see their citizens. NATO is all talk and very little action and you only have to look at its efforts in Afghanistan over the last two decades.

Of course it stands to reason that if Ukraine is (ever) granted NATO membership it would be tantamount to a declaration of war by NATO on Russia under Article 5 of NATO’s constitution. Realistically, there would be no question the granting outright membership of Ukraine and therefore and no support for this policy even in eastern Europe let alone western Europe. The neo-con puppeteers in Washington have left their little poodle very much in the lurch. His only safe move now is to take the nearest plane out from Kiev to Warsaw or Vilnius The latest member of the Saakashvili… Read more »

NATO says no!!!!!! Of course they say no, because they will be playing their vile games in the big boy’s back yard. And they are wise not to poke the bear.

A very good analysis of Zelensky’s plight. In a way I feel sorry for him and I wish the Sultan from the other side of the Black Sea would take him under his wing and teach him a thing or two about dealing with the Europeans and NATO. We know what the Americans’ game is: to cause harm to the security and interests of the Russian Federation. That’s the long and the short of it and Ukraine is just an expendable pawn. The Europeans on the one hand don’t want trouble in Eastern Europe, but on the other hand they… Read more »

Fast-track to NATO? Sounds like another notorious Putin Plan, to introduce a parasite to eat NATO’s innards from within. Then again, there’s already the Polish and Baltic Parasites, so the more the merrier, say the Rus.
