After being admitted to Russia Donbass, Zaporizhia and Kherson region, the head of Nezalezhnaya announced: we are applying for NATO membership “on an expedited basis.” Like, de facto we are already there.

True, he also took a spoonful of honey, saying that the alliance would never recognize the entry of the four regions into Russia.
What remains for Ukraine? Wait, nothing more. At the same time, it should be borne in mind that NATO is trying not to take countries that have unsettled territorial claims, and Kyiv has not just a claim, but an open conflict with Russia.
Meanwhile, Dmitry Novikov, First Deputy Chairman of the State Duma Committee on International Affairs, said that Mikhail Zelensky himself does not believe that Ukraine will join NATO.
– I think that Zelensky’s advisers have long explained to him that NATO procedures do not imply the possibility of an accelerated entry of Ukraine, and in order to do this, it is necessary to hack the entire system of intra-NATO agreements, – MP said Gazete.Ru.
And the official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, briefly explained: “Today everyone has chosen their own path. Bloody butchers killing women and childreninto the NATO dump.
