NATO Chief Confirms Ukraine Will Become a Member of NATO — Pushing US Closer to Nuclear War with Russia[1] 

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg confirmed that Ukraine will become a member of NATO. He made this announcement during his visit to Kyiv to discuss the ongoing conflict and future support from the alliance with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

The NATO chief acknowledged support delays that have had severe repercussions on the battlefield, emphasizing that although Ukraine has been outgunned, it is not too late for them to prevail, with increased support on the way.

Stoltenberg revealed that following President Zelenskyy’s appeal at the recent NATO-Ukraine Council meeting, NATO members, including the United States, the UK, Germany, and the Netherlands, have pledged to intensify their support. The US, thanks to the Democrats and their comrade Mike Johnson, along with other RINOS, is providing a new aid package worth over $60 billion.

The two leaders also discussed preparations for the upcoming NATO Summit in July, where plans for a more significant NATO role in coordinating security assistance and training for Ukraine will be unveiled. “We also need a major, multi-year financial commitment to sustain our support. Moscow must understand they cannot win. And they cannot wait us out,” Stoltenberg added.

Addressing Ukraine’s potential membership, Stoltenberg stated, “Ukraine’s rightful place is in NATO. Ukraine will become a member of NATO. The work we are undertaking now puts you on an irreversible path towards NATO membership, so Ukraine can become a NATO member straightaway when the time is right.”

While Ukraine’s ultimate NATO membership is seen as “inevitable,” the country faces challenges meeting the complete set of NATO membership criteria due to the ongoing conflict with Russia. However, NATO and its members are actively engaged in discussions and negotiations to address these issues and potentially accelerate Ukraine’s path to membership. At the 2023 Vilnius summit, NATO decided that Ukraine could join the alliance without completing a Membership Action Plan.

Earlier this month, Elon Musk cautioned that pushing for Ukraine’s NATO membership could lead the world towards a “nuclear apocalypse,” citing the 1983 film ‘The Day After’ as a grim reminder of the potential consequences. Meanwhile, a Russian Security Council official warned last year that Ukraine’s admission into NATO could inevitably lead to a World War III scenario, echoing President Vladimir Putin’s warning against “nuclear blackmail” from the West.

Just last month, on March 2, 2024, Putin warned the West during his annual “The State of Russia” speech.

The Biden regime ignored this warning. Putin noted that while accusing Russia of plans to attack NATO allies in Europe, Western allies were “selecting targets for striking our territory” and “talking about the possibility of sending a NATO contingent to Ukraine.” “We remember the fate of those who sent their troop contingents to our country’s territory,” the Russian leader said, in apparent allusion to Napoleon and Hitler’s failed invasions. Now, the consequences for the potential invaders will be far more tragic.”

In a two-hour speech before an audience of lawmakers and top officials, Putin cast Western leaders as reckless and irresponsible and declared that the West should keep in mind that “we also have the weapons that can strike targets on their territory, and what they are now suggesting and scaring the world with, all that raises the real threat of a nuclear conflict that will mean the destruction of our civilization.”; Contact:
