Secretary of State Antony Blinken of the United States of America has announced that Ukraine will become a member of NATO.

During a summit commemorating NATO’s 75th anniversary, Blinken informed press of this on Thursday.

Joining NATO is in Ukraine’s future. During the summit, our goal is to establish a connection to that membership, Blinken stated.

Support for Ukraine is still “rock solid” among member states, according to the US Secretary of State.

As Republicans in Congress block a $60 billion aid package for Ukraine, European officials are worried about US backing for the country.

At the conference, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba pushed for additional air defense systems, which he claimed were agreed upon.

“The Allies will conduct a drill to determine where to place these extra air defense systems so that they can be supplied to Ukraine and used to protect our skies,” he informed the assembled reporters.

The ministers of NATO came to a consensus on Wednesday to begin making preparations to coordinate military assistance to Ukraine more actively.

Stoltenberg has proposed that in the event that Donald Trump is re-elected president in November, NATO will assume responsibility for the work of a US-led coalition called the Ramstein group in order to prevent any reduction in assistance.

Stoltenberg reportedly also suggested a €100 billion fund to back the Ukrainian military for five years, according to diplomats.
