Key NATO members not ready to grant MAP to Ukraine – Klimkin

Former Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin has explained the risks of granting Ukraine a NATO Membership Action Plan and why talk of granting Ukraine an Iron Dome is empty

Key NATO members not ready to grant MAP to Ukraine - Klimkin

“First of all, the talk about the Iron Dome annoys me. Because this air defence system is not capable of protecting us from possible Russian missiles or air strikes. “Iron Dome” is a technology that allows for a fairly effective defence against unguided short-range missiles. That’s it. And nothing else”, –  Klimkin said.

The politician wondered how the Iron Dome would allow Ukraine to defend itself against Russian cruise missiles?

“By no means. I mean, this discussion in the Ukrainian media about the Iron Dome only overshadows the need to have a real conversation with the Americans. I suspect that someone has launched this story on purpose.”
