President Volodymyr Zelensky said that Russia attacked Ukraine basically because his nation isn’t a member of NATO.
Zelensky said on Sunday that in the event that his country had been admitted into the NATO alliance earlier, Russia could not have possibly invaded.
“If we were a NATO member, a war wouldn’t have started. I’d like to receive security guarantees for my country, for my people,” Zelensky told CNN.
According to the President, he was appreciative for how member countries of NATO have been able to help his country since the invasion started.
However, Zelensky approached the US, EU and different members of NATO to rapidly admit Ukraine into the organisation if they really need his country as a part.
“If NATO members are ready to see us in the alliance, then do it immediately because people are dying on a daily basis,” he added
He continued, “But if you are not ready to preserve the lives of our people, if you just want to see us straddle two worlds if you want to see us in this dubious position where we don’t understand whether you can accept us or not — you cannot place us in this situation, you cannot force us to be in this limbo.
“I requested them personally to say directly that we are going to accept you into NATO in a year or two or five, just say it directly and clearly, or just say no.
“And the response was very clear, you’re not going to be a NATO member, but publicly, the doors will remain open,” he said.
