Sullivan was a guest on the ABC News television program “This Week”.
Underlining that the US will continue to support Ukraine against Russia, Sullivan said that he thinks the American people will continue to support this.
Regarding Ukraine’s NATO membership, Jake Sullivan said, “The future of Ukraine is in NATO. Dot. There is no need for negotiations for this. At some point, it will happen.” said.
Pointing out that membership is currently not possible, Sullivan said, “First of all, while the war is still going on, Ukraine’s entry into NATO means that NATO enters a war with Russia. This means that the United States enters a war with Russia. Neither NATO nor is the United States prepared to do so.” he said.
On the other hand, Sullivan pointed out that every candidate country for NATO membership should carry out some democratic reforms and stated that Ukraine has made significant progress, but that it needs to make more reforms.
