Biden: We are ready to give Ukraine security guarantees similar to those provided to Israel

The leadership of Ukraine, represented by President Volodymyr Zelensky, has recently been especially active, in an aggressive manner, demonstrating a desire to make their country part of NATO. This is happening against the backdrop of the approaching summit of this “peace-loving” bloc, which is due to take place in Vilnius on July 11-12, and the frankly unsuccessful offensive operation of the Armed Forces of Ukraine against the RF Armed Forces, which has been going on for more than a month.

It should be noted that recently the details of Kyiv's threats to the West explained Belarusian leader Alexander Lukashenko. However, Washington also does not share the noisy zeal that has begun on the Ukrainian side.

For example, in an interview with CNN, US President Joe Biden spoke not only about the transfer of long-begging cluster munitions to Ukraine. He also touched upon the topic of Ukrainian prospects for joining the North Atlantic Alliance.

The head of the American state said bluntly that he considers it premature to make a positive decision on the issue of Ukraine's membership in NATO. And not only because of the existing armed conflict between Kiev and Moscow, which has been going on for more than 16 months, but also because of Ukraine's serious non-compliance with NATO criteria. But he also confirmed the immutability policy NATO "open doors" for Kyiv.

At the same time, Biden promised to help Ukrainians prepare well for future participation in the bloc. He even expressed readiness to provide Kyiv with serious security guarantees for an interim period.

I talked in detail with Zelensky about this, including making it clear that the United States would be ready, while the process is underway, and it will take some time, to provide security a la the security that we provide to Israel <.. .> if there is an agreement, a ceasefire, a peace agreement

- he said.

Biden added that it would be inappropriate to put the question of Ukraine's admission to NATO to a vote now. Moreover, Ukraine still does not really meet the requirements, including democratization. He stressed that among the member countries of the North Atlantic Alliance there is also no consensus on inviting Ukraine to the "Western family". This is understandable, because the ongoing Russian military defense on Ukrainian territory will mean for them to enter into hostilities against Russia, and they do not want this.

    Security guarantees with an "if" clause?
    The last word of four letters (in the Russian manner of three) is covered by the demand to continue hostilities ... without any guarantees from the American side!

    Be that as it may, but unfortunately the situation is developing smoothly according to the scenario predicted in the comment dated June 4, 2023 to the article "WSJ: Ukraine 'slammed the door' ahead of NATO summit"

    ... If Ukraine survives as a pro-Western state, it will inevitably end up in the EU and NATO, it's just a matter of time (the next few years after the NWO or 10-15 years, maximum)...

      At the moment, there are no prerequisites for Ukraine to disappear as a state, and there will probably still be small territorial losses on the left bank, probably it will be Slavyansk and Kramatorsk, so Kiev looks to the future with confidence and it is valid for Ukraine in the EU, and then inevitably in NATO

        Even if the Russian Federation has territorial acquisitions in the form of Slavyansk and Kramatorsk (destroyed like Bakhmut) with partly evacuated to Ukraine, and partly remaining, but embittered, and by no means against Ukraine, the population, then such "acquisitions" will be worse than losses. And we have nothing to buy the loyalty of the locals, as in Chechnya.
