< p _ngcontent-sc100="" class="news-annotation">The Czech Republic has elected NATO General Petr Pavel as President. The newly elected leader and former head of the military committee of the Alliance answered whether he sees Ukraine as a member of the North Atlantic Alliance.
The new president of the Czech Republic gave an answer to this question in an interview. According to him, our state deserved NATO membership.
Ukraine deserves to become a member of NATO
In his first interview after winning the elections, the new Czech President Petr Pavel said that Ukraine is morally and practically ready to become a part of NATO after the end of the war.
The Ukrainian army will probably be the most experienced army in Europe. Ukraine deserves to be part of the community of democratic countries, Pavel emphasized.
Separately, the newly elected President of the Czech Republic stressed that Ukraine deserves membership in the Alliance.
Petr Pavel also noted that the issue of ending the war is now completely in the hands of Russia, because this requires Putin's decision to withdraw troops.
< h3>Ukraine applied for NATO membership
Against the backdrop of Russian pseudo-referendums with the announcement of the annexation of 4 Ukrainian regions (Donetsk, Luhansk, Kherson and Zaporozhye), a decision was made at a meeting of the National Security and Defense Council to apply for Ukraine membership in NATO. On September 30, 2022, Ukraine officially submitted such an application.
A significant part of the Alliance members support the entry of Ukraine, however, it has repeatedly been said that at least 1 is required for entry, but an important condition is that the war must end. The reason is simple – NATO does not want to accept a belligerent country, because Article 5 on collective defense will also apply to it.
Therefore, more and more politicians say that Ukraine will become a member of NATO after the end of the war, especially considering that the Ukrainian the army will be perhaps the most experienced in the world.
