Not surprisingly, the proposal by Stian JensenThe NATO Secretary General’s Chief of Staff that Ukraine may have to cede its territories in order to join NATO was met with backlash at home.

Jenssen’s idea created “Surprise and some outrage in Ukraine”between the political leadership and the citizens, the expert told LA RAZÓN Volodymyr Dubovyk, Professor of International Relations at Odessa Mechnikov University.

“It seemed like an attempt to decide the fate of Ukraine and not the fate of Ukrainians. Even if the official takes that point of view, it would be more logical for him to keep it to himself and not express it publicly,” Dubovyk said.

Such ideas are supported only by those who do not understand the “interests and mood” in Ukraine. According to Dubovyk, joining NATO is important for Ukraine, but The liberation of all areas occupied by them has “absolute priority”.

Dubovyk and Ukrainian politicians emphasized that Russia will remain a threat and will not refrain from further attack attempts in this scenario. Zelenskyy’s parliamentary faction leader, Davyd Arakhamiya, said that discussions about ceding territories only encourage Russia’s aggression against Ukraine.

In fact, former Russian President Dmitry Medvedev has already sarcastically suggested that while the idea is a good one, Ukraine should also cede its capital, Kiev, to Russia as all of its territories are “questionable”.

Meanwhile, the NATO official has already apologized for his statement, calling it a “mistake”. He stressed that Ukraine will decide under what conditions it is ready to start negotiations with Moscow and what these negotiations will be about.

The alliance itself stated that its position “It’s clear and it hasn’t changed.. “We fully support Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity, as NATO leaders reaffirmed at the Vilnius Summit in July. “We will continue to support Ukraine as long as necessary and we are determined to achieve a just and lasting peace,” he said.
