The issue of Ukraine's accession to NATO is not currently being discussed among the member countries of the Alliance.

This was stated by the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Spain, Jose Manuel Alvarez, in an interview with El Pais.

He stressed that NATO is not yet considering Ukraine's membership in the Alliance in the medium term.

“I want to be clear: if someone thinks that the issue of this entry has become one of the reasons for Russian illegal aggression in Ukraine, then this is not so. This is part of a disinformation campaign. It has never been on the table, and now it is also not being discussed”, – said the minister.

BAGNET recalls that earlier Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said, that Russia launched a “military operation” due to the fact that the West allegedly tried to “draw Ukraine into NATO”.
