Biden says it 'remains to be seen' whether Ukraine will be admitted to NATO

To correct the misleading thread also in GD:

For a moment, it appeared Ukraine may be closer to joining the trans-Atlantic mutual protection treaty when President Volodymyr Zelenskyy appeared to announce a change on Twitter shortly before Biden began a news conference in Brussels, where he was attending a NATO summit.
...
Biden, who has previously called for Ukraine to join NATO, made clear that such a move had not been approved yet.

"School's out on that question. It remains to be seen," he said when asked for a "yes or no" about Ukraine joining the organization. "In the meantime we will do all we can to put Ukraine in a position to be able to continue to resist Russian physical aggression."

"It depends on whether they meet the criteria. The fact is they still have to clean up corruption and the fact is they have to meet other criteria to get into the action plan."

1. Thanks.

NATO gotta be careful. Since 2019 Russia has issued half a million passports to citizens of Ukraine. If some of those Ukrainian Russophiles or their friends should somehow slip into the Ukrainian government they could potentially compromise NATO operations.
