Details: When asked what Ukraine expects from the next NATO summit, Zelenskyy said: "we believe in [Ukraine’s] victory".


Quote from Zelenskyy: "We believe that the next, very important, step for Ukraine will happen during the next NATO summit in Washington, DC – a symbolic occasion marking the Alliance’s 75th anniversary. I think we have to work a lot in preparation for this summit."

Details: Zelenskyy stressed that Ukraine’s victory is his one and only wish, and added that Ukraine’s "victory will lead to NATO membership".

Quote from Zelenskyy: "And everyone knows there is unanimous support, and Ukraine will be a member of the European Union. This is only fair: Ukraine has fought for this future, which is now not so distant, to be an equal member of the EU and the security alliance, and an independent state."


Previously: In May, Zelenskyy reflected on the possibility of losing US military support after the 2024 US presidential election, saying that Ukraine could win the war by then.

Earlier, commenting on the decision of the Vilnius NATO summit, he emphasised that, contrary to the text of the declaration, the Alliance will not make political demands for inviting Ukraine to join NATO.
