All 30 NATO member countries agree with the need for Ukraine to join the Alliance, said Deputy Prime Minister for European and Euro-Atlantic Integration Olga Stefanishyna.

This was reported by the official during a speech at the Kyiv Security Forum, "European Truth" reports.

"We have made progress in the issue of rapprochement with NATO. At the last ministerial meeting in Bucharest,

all 30 NATO member countries agreed on the need to grant Ukraine membership in the Alliance

... NATO members confirmed that the door is open to Ukraine," said Stefanishyna.

She emphasized that this decision is not a repetition of the conclusion of the Bucharest Summit of the Alliance in 2008. 

"

This is a new powerful signal

, and it is very important that it shows: no one is afraid of pressure from the Russian Federation," the deputy prime minister added.

According to her, NATO plans to use political tools 

to put pressure on Hungary

, which is blocking Ukraine's participation in political meetings of the allies due to the issue of national minorities.

We will remind, the day before NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg stated that a preliminary condition for consideration of Ukraine's membership in the Alliance is victory over Russia.

During a meeting in Romania on November 29, the heads of foreign affairs of NATO member states confirmed the Alliance's support for Ukraine's right to choose its own path and assured that "the door is open" for it.
