Klimkin: NATO can learn from Ukraine

Климкин: НАТО есть чему поучиться у Украины

The Alliance will be useful for Ukrainian tactics, stamina and readiness, said the foreign Minister.

The Minister of foreign Affairs of Ukraine Pavlo Klimkin said in an interview with Profil that Kiev could benefit NATO.

“The Western Alliance must prepare for new challenges, and Ukraine is easier than without us… We showed that we are fighting for our country. We’re not an easy target. This applies not only to equipment or our expertise in hybrid war the Russian. Our NATO partners may have a lot to learn. We are talking about tactics, endurance and readiness. Without them modern weapons will not help,” − said the Minister.

Also Klimkin commented on the issue of Ukraine’s accession to the EU. According to him, it will happen when both parties are ready.

“The perception of Ukraine in the EU after three years of independence has changed dramatically in a positive direction. The support is there. But is the EU doing in Ukraine? Maybe not” − said the Minister.

Recall, the Verkhovna Rada adopted the law on securing Ukraine’s membership in NATO as a foreign policy priority.

Previously Klimkin said that Ukraine will achieve all the standards of NATO until 2020.
