When drawing up security guarantees, Ukraine will not duplicate the provisions of the NATO charter that have not been applied in practice. Instead, Kyiv will require the guarantor countries to make a decision on assistance within a day ” alt=”Zelensky said that the guarantor countries should help as soon as possible” />
After the signing of the agreement that Russia and Ukraine are developing in exchange for Kyiv's refusal to join NATO, the guarantor countries Ukrainian security will have to help it in the event of aggression as soon as possible. This was stated by the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky in an interview with the Polish media, follows from the video in his Telegram.
According to the president, Moscow and Kyiv are not going to create an association of countries that will duplicate the structure and functions of NATO, since Ukraine needs its own security guarantees. They should be based on the real experience that Kyiv has received in the current hostilities, and not on the rules of the North Atlantic Alliance, which have not been tested in practice.
“In this association [of guarantor countries], the most important thing— it's people and timing. No matter how cynical it sounds, you can save the number of people depending on the amount of time. <…> Do not talk about the need to get together, decide ten days, send another four weeks, analyze another eight weeks. We are just speaking from our experience. We need security guarantees— «watch people», — Zelensky said.
According to him, Ukraine requires such a format of guarantees, when a decision on assistance will be made on the first day. At the same time, the list of actions of the guarantors will no longer be needed not by the one who was attacked, but by the one who is going to attack in order to “know what awaits him”, the Ukrainian leader added.
Russia launched a military operation in Ukraine on February 24. The Russian and Ukrainian delegations held a series of negotiations. The specific proposals of the delegation were worked out by the time of the meeting in Istanbul on March 29. In response to Moscow's demand to abandon plans to join NATO, Kiev proposed a new scheme of security guarantees with the participation of permanent members of the UN Security Council, including Russia. Moscow also recommended that Belarus be included in the list.
The head of the Russian delegation, Volodymyr Medinsky, explained that the Ukrainian security scheme involves refusing to produce and deploy all types of weapons of mass destruction in the country, joining military alliances, deploying foreign military bases, contingents, and conducting military exercises on its territory without the consent of the guarantor states.< /p> Read on RBC Pro Pro How to outwit trolls and malicious competitors.
