The President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky announced this Friday (23) that will present an application for the country’s accession to NATO as a matter of urgency.

“We are taking a decisive step by signing Ukraine’s application for NATO membership on an accelerated basis,” Zelensky said on the Telegram messaging platform shortly after Russian President Vladimir Putin signed the country’s annexation of four Ukrainian territories controlled almost entirely by Russian forces.

Zelensky commented that Ukraine , “in practice”, is already on the way to becoming a member of the military alliance and has shown its “compatibility” with its military standards, which are “real” for Kiev both on the battlefield and in the interaction with the members.

“There is mutual trust, we help and protect each other. This is the alliance”, he said.

With that, according to him, Ukraine will present the request later this Friday to turn accession into a reality in the formal field.

Zelensky met with the Ukrainian National Security Council this Friday on a day when Putin signed treaties of annexation, by Russia, of the four Ukrainian regions partially occupied by the country: Zaporizhzhia, Kherson, Donetsk and Lugansk, which represent about 10% of the territory of Ukraine.

The decision of the Kremlin was taken after the realization, between 18 and 27 of September, of referendums not recognized by the international community in these q Four territories.
