New Israel? What status will NATO give to Ukraine?

Before joining NATO, Western countries could offer Ukraine a security model along the lines of the one Israel has.

Talks about Ukraine’s entry into NATO and the format of cooperation with the alliance intensified on the eve of the alliance’s summit in Vilnius. The Wall Street Journal writes that NATO is ready to offer Ukraine a security model along the lines of one

that Israel has. This will facilitate the transfer of weapons and advanced technologies to Kyiv and will be a step towards membership in the alliance.

Security Guarantees

WSJ interlocutors said the parties to the security guarantee agreement would include the US, UK, Germany and France. Senior officials in several European capitals, particularly Paris and Berlin, said they were “generally in agreement with the plan.”

Western officials told the newspaper that an Israeli-style agreement with Ukraine could change the course of the current war unleashed by Russia, and the document itself would be linked to the process of Kiev’s transition to future membership in Alliance, “without making it. part of the conflict.”

The security agreement, based on a proposal known as the Kiev Security Treaty, is expected to be signed after the July NATO summit in Vilnius, which is expected to include Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, officials familiar with the talks told the WSJ .

SAHow does this work

Israel is not a member of NATO, and members of the alliance, especially the United States, are not obligated to help the country in the event of war. Washington’s aid to Israel is now governed by a ten-year agreement, the latest of which mandates the US to provide $38 billion in military aid between 2019 and 2028.

Who is against?

But German Chancellor Olaf Scholz has bluntly stated that Ukraine will not join NATO in the foreseeable future. The head of the German government was asked if he would theoretically support Ukraine’s membership in NATO after the war.
At the 2008 Bucharest summit, NATO made “decisions that set a long-term perspective,” Scholz replied.
It is clear to everyone, continued the German Chancellor, that “this will not happen in the foreseeable future.” Included because “NATO criteria include some conditions that Ukraine currently cannot fulfill,” Scholz added.

The position of the authorities

Earlier, Zelensky said that Ukraine would not agree to alternative proposals that could replace NATO membership.

“I want to say and convey to all our partners who are constantly looking for compromises for Ukraine on the road to NATO that Ukraine will also be uncompromising on this issue,” he said.
