Ukraine will become a member of NATO, but first it has to implement reforms. The Guardian quotes Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg as saying that member states will decide which reforms to implement.
Stoltenberg noted that it is too early to say what decision will be made at the Washington summit on Ukraine. He added that "all allies agree that full membership is not possible in times of war, but of course we will continue to look for ways to bring Ukraine and NATO even closer together."
"Allies agree that Ukraine will become a NATO member. At the [NATO-Ukraine] meeting, we will agree on recommendations for the Ukrainians... on reforms, as we continue to support Kyiv on this path to NATO membership," he said.
This month, Germany and the Netherlands pledged €10 billion to Ukraine, Stoltenberg added. Romania has added a training centre for Ukrainian pilots for the F-16. Allies, including the US and Finland, are sending more air defence equipment and ammunition to protect Ukrainian cities from Russian attacks.
Stoltenberg also said that Sweden's membership in NATO "will make us all safer" and urged Turkey and Hungary to complete ratification.
