As for those who prevent the Ukrainian side from joining NATO, not all of them speak out openly. It is known that such states as Germany, France and Hungary do not unequivocally support in this matter. Moreover, all three countries are committed to cooperation with Russia.
Moscow has also repeatedly stated that it will take all the necessary steps if Ukraine nevertheless becomes a NATO member. Russian President Vladimir Putin believes that the alliance’s weapons can be used for other purposes, not only as a defense.
