Ukraine’s ambassador to the United Kingdom addressed prior comments regarding the former Soviet republic withdrawing its NATO membership bid, saying the former Soviet republic will not revisit its bid.

What Prystaiko said: “No, this is not, and I am quite delighted that I have this opportunity to clarify my position,” Ambassador Vadym Prystaiko told the BBC in English when asked if Ukraine would reconsider its intentions to join NATO.

  • The earlier BBC report, according to Prystaiko, was the consequence of a misunderstanding.
  • “We are not a member of NATO right now and to avoid war we are ready for many concessions and that is what we are doing in conversations with the Russians,” Prystaiko said. “It has nothing to do with NATO which is enshrined in the constitution.”
  • “It is not a delay to our ambitions to be in NATO – what we are talking about is that we are not in the family now so we have to look for something else like bilateral agreements with the UK, with the United States,” he said. “So on top of NATO we are looking for some other arrangements which would allow us to survive at this particular ordeal right now.”
  • When asked if Ukraine’s bid to join NATO was changing, he replied, “No.”
