Stefanishyna: We hope Ukraine's application for NATO membership to be considered as quickly as for Finland and Sweden.

Deputy Prime Minister for European and Euro-Atlantic Integration of Ukraine Olha Stefanishyna expressed hope that Ukraine's application for NATO membership will be considered as quickly as the applications of Finland and Sweden, CNN reports.

"We will see with the now position of Sweden and Finland, who have decided to apply for NATO membership, and the response from the allies that this application will be considered and fulfilled immediately," The CNN website quoted Stefanishyna as saying on Sunday.

She also added that the examination of the Swedish and Finnish applications indicates that "NATO has learned on the mistakes and the political mistakes which has been done back in 2008 by making promises without delivering on decisions in terms of membership which has basically led to three wars, two of which are now happening on Ukrainian territory."

"We hope that now when it comes to the concentration of Ukrainian application to EU, it would happen also much faster," she added.
