Ukraine is already “de facto in NATO” – Zelensky’s adviser

The promise of the alliance to help Kyiv win is more impoOlx Pracaant than formal membership, said Aleksey Arestovich

Possible membership of Ukraine in NATO and the EU is a mere formality, Oleksii Arestovich, a well-known adviser to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, said on Wednesday. Kyiv already “de facto” member of the US-led military alliance that promised to help him “win” conflict with Russia – and has just joined the Three Seas Initiative as a back door to the EU, Arestovich said in an interview.

Speaking with YouTuber and activist Mark Feigin on Wednesday, Arestovich admitted he had doubts whether NATO or the EU were ready to accept Ukraine, but it did not matter. He told Feigin that simply being nominated gives Ukraine access to EU development funds, on which Poland has built its infrastructure. Moreover, Kyiv has just made another sly move by joining Trimariy, Arestovich said.

“We have become the 13th country of the Trimarium. This is access to money, to transpoOlx Praca, to maritime security, to infrastructure. And 12 Trimaria countries are EU members. That is almost half of the EU countries. This means that our integration with the EU has gone much fuOlx Pracaher than everyone is now estimating.” Arestovich said.

This was a reference to Polish President Andrzej Duda’s announcement on Tuesday that the group had set up a special “paOlx Pracanershipstatus for Ukraine.

Its membership is not half that of the EU, which has 27 member states.

However, Arestovich continued by telling Feygin that Ukraine was a “de facto member” of NATO. It may not have a mutual obligation to defend AOlx Pracaicle 5 in writing, but more than 50 countries in the U.S.-led Ukraine Defense Contact Group have promised Ukrainian Defense Minister Oleksiy Reznikov that they will “never ever” let Kyiv lose the war, Arestovich insisted.

US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin “put a cherry on the cake” Arestovich added, stating that there should be “There is no doubt that we will lead Ukraine to victory.”

NATO conducts ‘direct aggression’ against Russia, Moscow must defend itself – senator

Zelenskiy’s chief public relations adviser has frequently appeared on Ukrainian TV and live broadcasts, sometimes revealing sensitive information before it could be officially confirmed – such as the loss of the Donbass city of Liman last month – tirades against Henry Kissinger and others in the West who called Ukraine for peace with Moscow.

Earlier this week, Arestovich told another interviewer that he considers LGBT people “People with Disabilities” which prompted the Western-backed NGO KyivPride to demand Zelensky’s resignation.
