Ukraine is harshly attacking NATO, saying it remains passive with the EU in making revolutionary decisions, although several Western member states in both organizations have helped the invading country militarily and financially.
The Volodymyr Zelensky administration on Wednesday accused the North Atlantic Alliance of passivity in the context of the Russian military intervention in Ukraine, praising instead the mobilization of the European Union.
“We perceive NATO as an alliance, as an institution that stands aside and does nothing effectively,” Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmitro Kuleba told the World Economic Forum in Davos, according to observatornews.ro.
Ukraine considers NATO a power, and the EU an organization that expressed only concerns before the Russian invasion
Dmitro Kuleba said that before launching the Russian military invasion, Ukraine considered NATO as a “power” and the European Union as an organization that “expressed concerns”.
“But the war brought the fall of the masks. We are watching the revolutionary decisions taken by the European Union, decisions that we did not expect “, Dmitro Kuleba underlined, stating that Ukraine now has as a priority the accession to the European Union, although the Ukrainian Constitution does not mention” Euro-Atlantic “aspirations.
An international controversy is currently raging over military planes from a NATO country that have been delivered to Ukraine.
Speculation began on Tuesday, April 19, 2022. On that day, the United States announced that Ukraine had received fighter jets. “I would just like to say, without giving details about what other countries are providing, that the Ukrainians have received air platforms and additional parts in order to be able to increase their aircraft fleet. I don’t want to say more, “said Pentagon Press Secretary John Kirby.
His announcement appeared to refer to Soviet-style air platforms (aircraft) and parts for such aircraft.
In response, the Ukrainian Air Force announced that “Ukraine has not received any new aircraft from its partners.” The Ukrainian side only confirmed that, “with the assistance of the United States Government, the Ukrainian Air Force has received parts and components for the refurbishment and repair of the Air Force fleet, which will allow more equipment to enter service. ”.
