"At the same time, it is also clear that we cannot talk about new membership in the midst of war," Baerbock said, commenting on Ukraine's accession.

Upon arriving at the summit of the European Political Community in Moldova, Latvian Prime Minister Krišjānis Kariņš said that the possibility of Ukraine's membership in the Alliance after the war with Russia ends will be discussed at the NATO summit in Vilnius in July.

Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte also noted that NATO will not be able to offer full membership to Ukraine at the summit in July due to Russia's war of aggression.
