Post Ukraine’s president seeks US backing to gain NATO membership

Ukraine’s president seeks US backing to gain NATO membership
By: Scott Moritz - Bloomberg News & The Charlotte Observer News - 09-12-21

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy is calling for unspecified assistance from the U.S., including increased support for maintaining its independence from Russia and President Joe Biden’s backing for joining the North Atlantic Treaty Organization.

“The fact that we’re on the priority list of countries that President Biden met with means that we are a priority for the U.S. and we are thankful for that,” Zelenskyy said in an interview with CNN host Fareed Zakaria broadcast Sunday. “That’s a big signal, but behind the signal you’re also expecting actions.”

The two leaders met this month at the White House, where Biden said the U.S. was committed to Ukraine’s “sovereignty and territorial integrity.” Zelenskyy said at the time he would ask for Biden’s support in joining NATO.

“I asked President Biden very directly about NATO,” Zelenskyy said on CNN. “The U.S. always gives a message and a signal” to European leaders, he said.


Personal note: I thought they were tight with Russia? (Unless Russia Ok'd it?)

O Almighty Lord God, who neither slumberest nor sleepest; Protect and assist, we beseech thee, all those who at home or abroad, by land, by sea, or in the air, are serving this country, that they, being armed with thy defence, may be preserved evermore in all perils; and being filled with wisdom and girded with strength, may do their duty to thy honour and glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
