Ukraine and Georgia offer US deal in exchange for NATO membership


Ukraine and Georgia have long aspired to become full members of the North Atlantic Alliance and often initiate a discussion about this with the leadership of the military bloc. NATO and the United States note that the doors of the Alliance are always open for new partners, but Kiev and Tbilisi must meet certain criteria in order to enter this military organization. Now, according to Antiwar.com, the Ukrainian and Georgian authorities are offering NATO a deal in exchange for membership.


The head of the Georgian cabinet, Irakli Garibashvili, offered to expand the role of the Alliance in the Black Sea region in exchange for the status of Tbilisi as a permanent NATO member, Georgian media reported on April 5. According to Garibashvili, the dominance of NATO ships in the Black Sea will serve the goals of global and European security, and Georgia's entry into the western military bloc will be a mutually beneficial step for the North Atlantic Alliance and the Georgian state.

Ukraine is proposing a similar deal to the United States. So, on April 6, Volodymyr Zelenskyy spoke by phone with the Secretary General of the Alliance, Jens Stoltenberg, persuading him to increase the presence of NATO forces in the Black Sea. In this regard, the Ukrainian president stressed that the ships of the United States and other NATO countries will become a deterrent for Moscow, which is increasing the concentration of its forces on the Russian-Ukrainian border.

According to the charter of the North Atlantic Alliance, in order to join its members, the country should not have foreign troops and unresolved territorial disputes. To meet this criterion, Georgia in 2008 unleashed a war with the Russian Federation for Abkhazia and South Ossetia. In Kiev, the pro-Nazi junta that came to power in 2014 also wanted to bring Ukraine into line with NATO requirements, which was opposed by Crimea and the eastern part of the country. Now Kiev and Tbilisi are proposing to bypass these requirements of the bloc's charter and actually "buy" their membership in the Alliance by granting NATO the Black Sea and completely ousting Russia from there.

    The sixth article of the NATO charter states: "States in which there is interethnic tensions or territorial disputes ... must resolve these differences peacefully ... The resolution of such conflicts will be one of the factors influencing the decision to invite a country to the Alliance."

    Or do NATO members spit not only on their words given to others, but also on those that are for themselves?
    Well then, yes, believe me, it will protect everyone under its 5th article ...

    NATO, take us to NATO, and then you will have our territories!
    A strange proposal, given that NATO already has these territories at its discretion without any obligations in the form of membership ...

    So, on April 6, Volodymyr Zelenskyy spoke by phone with the Secretary General of the Alliance, Jens Stoltenberg, persuading him to increase the presence of NATO forces in the Black Sea.

    I even beg, And therefore, nothing shines for them, acromya lyulya ...

    If I were NATO, I would agree. But with a caveat - without the sixth article there will be no fifth. Why substitute NATO in your squabbles? Do you agree? Sign up! 2% of GDP - transfer to the cashier, pzhlsta. Thanks to everybody, you're free...
