“We are confident that we have already shown the capabilities of our forces to the whole world. By the level of training, by the stability of our defense system. I think we are at least on the same level as the NATO member countries. And I think it would be fair if we were in the same security circle and in the same security alliance,” Zelensky said.
He added that if Ukraine’s path to NATO “takes more than the country can afford,” then Kyiv “needs security guarantees” that will prove that the state has the opportunity to become a member of the alliance.
“Everyone says that the doors to NATO are open, but they still need to be reached,” Zelensky said.
He also pointed out that, despite the public support in NATO member countries for Ukraine, a number of leaders of these states oppose its entry into the alliance.
