Stoltenberg Says the Ukraine “Closer to NATO than Ever” as Zelensky Promises Offensive to “Gain Pace” Soon

I thought he had to win the war (or lose the war) before he could join NATO?

So is he close to one or the other of those things?

I guess?


Ukraine is advancing on the battlefield, liberating its territories step by step, approaching the moment where counteroffensive actions could accelerate.

That’s according to President Volodymyr Zelensky, who spoke at the 14th annual Aspen Security Forum via video conference, Ukrinform reports, referring to the President’s Office.

“Because we started (the counteroffensive – ed.) a bit later on, it can be said, and it will be the truth understood by all experts, that it has provided Russia with time to mine our lands and build several lines of defense. Definitely, they had more time than they needed. It slowed our counteroffensive. We did not want to lose our vehicles and personnel, and our servicemen did not want to lose their equipment. Still, I would say we’re approaching the moment when our counteroffensive actions can gain pace. Because we are already going through demining these areas,” Zelensky said.

Ah, yeah, okay.


The counteroffensive.

He’s just getting ready to win.

Could be mere hours now before he takes Crimea.

Great job!
