Now Finland Is A Part Of NATO, What About Ukraine Membership?

Objectivity 4.8 | Credibility 4.8 | Relevance 4.8

Now that Finland has officially joined NATO and many believe that Turkey will eventually vote in favor of Sweden’s admission, questions remain about the admissions of other countries that have applied — Bosnia, Georgia and especially Ukraine.  Despite NATO members independently providing over $71 billion in military equipment and over $164 billion in total aid to Ukraine, most members agree that Ukraine’s admission depends on the outcome of the current conflict. NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said, “We all realize that to make any meaningful progress on this issue, the first step is to ensure that Ukraine prevails as a sovereign, independent nation.” Meanwhile, NATO members continue to walk the thin line of providing aid to Ukraine while not becoming directly drawn into a war with Russia.
