Discussion paper by Alyona Getmanchuk, Sergiy Solodkyy and Marianna Fakhurdinova aiming to unblock the discussion on Ukraine’s membership in NATO.


“At the moment, there are good reasons to give consideration not only to the Alliance’s open-door policy but the proposed roadmap for Ukraine’s future membership (sort of Ukraine’s Compatibility plan with NATO) as NATO develops its Strategic Concept for 2030. Such a roadmap would confirm the destination point set within the Bucharest Summit as to Ukraine and Georgia’s future membership in the Alliance and allow the sides to determine Ukraine’s best route towards this point through the implementation of a certain array of reforms.”
