Russia has no right to veto Ukraine's accession to NATO – Kuleba.

Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba believes that Ukraine had every reason to be invited to the NATO summit, which took place in Brussels on June 14.

"Ukraine should have been invited to this summit. It had every reason for this," Kuleba said on the air of 1+1 TV channel.

The minister has repeatedly stressed Ukraine's Euro-Atlantic prospects.

“We understand that we will go through this path, and Ukraine will be a member of the North Atlantic Alliance,” Kuleba stressed.

Regarding Moscow's influence on this process, he pointed out that the Russian Federation is "a certain reality that must be reckoned with, but it does not and will not have the right to veto Ukraine's accession to NATO."

Kuleba also called Putin's statements about Ukraine's NATO membership as a "red line" for Russia a deceit, since Estonia is a member of the Alliance and "located not far from St. Petersburg."

As Ukrinform reported, on June 14, the NATO summit was held in Brussels to consider ways to strengthen the transatlantic partnership and develop the Alliance by 2030.

NATO Heads of State and Government reaffirmed their support for the territorial integrity of Ukraine, Georgia, and the Republic of Moldova, and called on Russia to withdraw its troops from the occupied territories.

Meanwhile, the Kremlin said that Ukrainian membership of NATO would be a "red line" for Moscow and that it was worried by talk that Kyiv may one day be granted a Membership Action Plan.
