According to him, the Constitution doesn’t see Ukraine without NATO. At the same time, the minister did not make forecasts when will this happen. There is no consensus in NATO on the timetable for Ukraine’s accession.

“I will not name any dates. But, according to the logic of the historical process, I can confidently assume that Ukraine will become a NATO member earlier than an EU member. We are moving towards NATO membership. We don’t know exactly when will it happen. Everything we do from now on and until membership in NATO is achieved, and what does not interfere with this goal – is permissible” – Kuleba said.
