Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky announced on Friday that his country is formally applying to join the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), using an accelerated accession mechanism.

“We are taking our decisive step by signing Ukraine’s application for accelerated NATO membership,” Zelensky said in a statement, stressing that his country has already advanced on its path to NATO membership through compatibility with the standards of the Atlantic Alliance showed.

“Is real [los estándares] for Ukraine, really on the battlefield and in all aspects of our interaction. We trust each other, we protect each other. It is an alliance, de facto. Today, Ukraine is applying to do just that de jure“, he pointed.
