Ukrinform stands for President Rumen Radev’s news service, which was launched on Monday.

“Bulgaria accepts the declaration of the NATO summit in Bucharest in 2008 on Ukraine’s future accession, but this declaration was adopted under completely different security conditions,” the press release said.

The press service explained that due to the hostilities in Ukraine, its membership in NATO should be discussed in the full body of the North Atlantic Council. Also, the decision to accept Ukraine should not risk the alliance’s direct involvement in a war between the Russian Federation and Ukraine.

Ukraine is applying to join NATO under an accelerated procedure

On Friday, Ukraine began efforts to fast-track membership of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. The motion was signed by the Head of State, Parliament Speaker Ruslan Stepanchuk and Defense Minister Oleksii Reznikov.

President Volodymyr Zelensky said this in his speech after Vladimir Putin’s decision to annex the occupied territories of Ukraine.

– We complete the elimination of Russian influence in Ukraine, Europe and the world – he called on the representatives to support the law on the nationalization of all Russian assets in Ukraine.

“In fact, we’ve already reached NATO. We’re proven in practice with alliance standards. They’re true for Ukraine — true on the battlefield and in all aspects of our relationship. We trust each other, we help each other, we protect each other. . . . This is what the alliance is all about.” – Zelensky wrote on Facebook.
