US General said Ukraine will become a NATO member

During a speech at the Lviv Forum, retired US Lieutenant General Ben Hodges stated that “Ukraine and Georgia deserve a place in NATO based on shared values ​​and threats”.

“I think Georgia should have been in NATO by now, and Ukraine should have followed soon after”, – the American general said.

However, according to experts, one of the main points preventing Ukraine from obtaining NATO membership is the threatening level of corruption and the protracted conflict in Donbas.
