In recent months, Ukraine has received positive signals from some countries that are ready to support its accession to NATO. Support means more than just offering an open door policy, President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said at a briefing with Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte and Prime Minister Alexander de Croo.
"But we are realistic, we understand that we will not be in NATO during the war. But during the war, we want to get a clear signal that we will become a NATO member after the war," Zelenskyy said.
Earlier, the Ukrainian government said it was seeking to receive specific signals at the NATO summit to be held in Vilnius in July. Zelenskyy was invited to attend the summit as a guest.
