Ukrainians to Decide on NATO Membership in Referendum

Updated on

Ukraine will decide whether to join NATO in a referendum at the end of this decade once it moves from “empty declarations” and completes “real” policy changes needed for membership, President Petro Poroshenko said.

“We have worked out an intense plan for the next six years, so that the country meets the criteria to join the EU and to join NATO,” Poroshenko said in Kiev today. “And only then the Ukrainian people will decide on joining or not joining, in a referendum.”
