Blinken says Ukraine “will become a member of NATO”
04/07/2024 // Arsenio Toledo // Views

Secretary of State Antony Blinken has just announced that Ukraine will become a member of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO).

Blinken made this statement on Thursday, April 4, to reporters while representatives of the military organization were gathered in Brussels, Belgium to mark the 75th anniversary of the signing of the North Atlantic Treaty that established the transatlantic alliance.

"Ukraine will become a member of NATO," said Blinken. "Our purpose at the summit is to help build a bridge to that membership and to create a clear pathway for Ukraine moving forward."

"We've done a lot of work on that over the last couple of days here in Brussels," he continued. "A lot more work to be done between now and the summit, but we will see, I think, in the summit, very strong support for Ukraine going forward in this relationship with NATO."

Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba added that Kyiv's focus first and foremost is to get NATO to provide more aid to deal with the immediate situation on the battlefield. He claimed that relentless Russian airstrikes were destroying Ukraine's energy infrastructure, disrupting the economy and killing civilians. All the while, Kyiv's diplomats are working hard to urge "allies … to provide … new additional air defense systems, the best of which is the [American-made] Patriot."

"Ukraine deserves to be a member of NATO and … this should happen … sooner rather than later," he added.

Before this statement, NATO allies agreed in its 2023 summit in Vilnius, Lithuania that Ukraine could eventually join NATO if it met certain conditions, the biggest of which is the conclusion of the conflict with Russia. Other conditions include the passage of genuine reforms to improve governance, rule of law, and political freedom.

"We believe that NATO is in Ukraine's future," said White House National Security spokesperson John Kirby at the time, but noted that President Joe Biden believes Ukraine isn't ready for NATO membership until it passes these reforms.

"We understand it's hard to work on some of those reforms when you are at war," said Kirby.

Ukraine joining NATO means U.S. is going to war with Russia

All 32 current member states of NATO are bound by the North Atlantic Treaty. One of the key provisions of this treaty is Article Five, which states that an armed attack against one NATO member is considered an attack against all members.

"Article Five provides that if a NATO ally is the victim of an armed attack, each and every other member of the alliance will consider this act of violence as an armed attack against all members and will take the actions it deems necessary to assist the ally attacked," reads NATO's explanation of Article Five on its website. "Every participating country agreed that this form of solidarity was at the heart of the [North Atlantic Treaty], effectively making Article Five on collective defense a key component of the alliance."

Critics have warned that making Ukraine a member of NATO while it is fighting Russia and while Russia occupies territories that Ukraine and the international community considers part of Ukraine effectively means that the United States and all other NATO member states would be going to war against Russia.
