Olga Stefanishyna, Ukraine’s Deputy Prime Minister for European and Euro-Atlantic Integration, has expressed her expectation that Ukraine’s NATO membership application will be examined as swiftly as Sweden’s and Finland’s. According to accounts, this is true.

She said “We will see with the now position of Sweden and Finland who have decided to apply for NATO membership, and the response from the allies that this application will be considered and fulfilled immediately. It only serves one very obvious argument that NATO has learned from the political mistakes which has been done back in 2008 by making promises without delivering on decisions and membership which has basically led to three wars, two of which are now happening in Ukrainian territory,”

“When it comes to the consideration of the Ukrainian application, it will likewise happen considerably faster,” Stefanishyna said.

On Sunday, Finnish President Sauli Niinistö announced that his country would apply to join NATO.

Later, Sweden’s ruling Social Democratic Party supported the country’s membership in NATO.

“NATO’s door is open” for Sweden and Finland, according to NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg.
