Former U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger said at the World Economic Forum in Davos on Tuesday that the idea of ​​Ukraine’s neutrality no longer makes sense, confirming that he supports Ukraine’s joining NATO after the peace, despite Kiev’s previous opposition to membership in the alliance. .

Speaking to the forum via Zoom, Kissinger said, referring to Russia’s all-out war against Ukraine, “Before this war, I was against Ukraine’s NATO membership because I was afraid it could initiate the exact process we see now.”

“Now that this process has reached this level, the idea of ​​a neutral Ukraine no longer makes sense under these circumstances,” said the former US Secretary of State.

“At the end of this process that I have described, whatever form NATO develops should be guaranteed by NATO, but I believe that Ukraine’s membership in NATO would be the most appropriate outcome,” Kissinger said.

According to the internet publication “UnHerd”, it is significant that Kissinger, who is known as a realist in international relations and has long opposed Ukraine’s NATO membership, supports this idea.

In September, he told the Council on Foreign Relations, a US think tank, that such a move would be unwise as it would escalate the conflict.

Last month, he called for a ceasefire that would allow Russia to draw troops to the border line before the February invasion, and for Crimea to be the subject of negotiations.
