Ukraine will not be able to become a member of NATO until it regains Crimea. Such an opinion was voiced by the army general of Ukraine, ex-commander of the Internal Troops of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine, former head of the Donetsk Regional State Administration Alexander Kikhtenko.

“In my environment there are no people who would believe that we will soon become members of NATO. This is not a charitable organization, it is expensive. Secondly, NATO does not accept countries that have territorial issues, and the Ukrainian Crimea has become part of the Russian Federation. Until it returns, and the fighting in the East ends, it is not serious to talk about NATO. We can become members of NATO in 10-20 years, or not at all,” Kikhtenko said.

He believes that a victory for Ukraine would be not joining the Alliance, but establishing special relations with the United States, like Israel.

“For us, it is not so important to build our army according to NATO standards. Because these are very serious criteria, which Ukraine is not able to fulfill today. We need to build our own Ukrainian army, which could now ensure the defense of our state. For this it is necessary to approach the problems of manning it in a different way.

We now have a ‘workers and peasants’ army. People are serving who for some reason could not abandon the call, “- said Kikhtenko.
