(UKRAINE) UIF Report: A total of 64% of Ukrainians support the initiative for Ukraine to join the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO)

‘Some 64% of Ukrainians stand for Ukraine’s accession to NATO according to a poll and another 14% of those surveyed are convinced this is unlikely to happen anytime soon’

#AceNewsReport – Apr.22: In particular, 43% of respondents fully support Ukraine’s accession to NATO, 21% say they “rather support” it:

That’s according to a recent survey run by the Ukrainian Institute for the Future (UIF) with the assistance of New Image Marketing Group, an UNIAN correspondent reported.

April 21, 2021

At the same time, 7% of respondents “rather oppose” the idea, while 12% fully oppose it.

Oleksandr Shulha, Doctor of Sociological Sciences, has noted that these indicators remain dynamic.

“When tensions rise in our country, when Russia deploys its troops, when there’s direct invasion as it was in 2015, the number of those who believe that Ukraine needs to join NATO increases greatly. During periods of relative calm, the figure falls, but the share of those who believe that it’s necessary to join NATO always exceeds the number of those who believe there’s no need to join,” he explained.

The number of NATO accession supporters has changed dramatically since 2014, when only 15-20% of respondents believed Ukraine needed to join the Alliance, while half of the respondents believed the country should not.

At the same time, the survey shows respondents remain rather skeptical about the near-future prospects for joining NATO. Only 7% of respondents are sure this is possible in the near future, up to a year from now, while 28% suggest such rapid accession is possible.

Another 37% of respondents are convinced that joining is possible, but not in the coming years, while 14% believe it is unlikely, and 14% believe Ukraine will never join NATO.

*** The survey was conducted in April. Some 1,148 respondents aged 18 and older were involved in an online survey on an interactive structured questionnaire in all regions except for the temporarily occupied territories of Crimea and Donbas. The margin of error does not exceed 3.5%.

(UKRAINE) JUST IN: President Volodymyr Zelensky has invited his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin to “meet anywhere in the Ukrainian Donbas, where there is a war.” #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Apr.21: And I would like to address our northern neighbor separately. Once the President of the Russian Federation said: if a fight is inevitable, you need to hit first. But, in my opinion, today every leader must understand that a fight cannot be inevitable when it is not about the gateway and hooligans, but about a real war and millions of human lives,” Zelensky said:

‘Zelensky invites Putin to meet in Donbas he announced this in a video message dedicated to Russian aggression’

He mentioned that Second World War veterans still live in Donbas, “who liberated this land from the Nazis and do not understand why their peaceful life, 75 years later, is again under the threat of war.”

“Ukraine and Russia, despite their common past, look to the future differently. We are who we are. You are who you are. But this is not necessarily a problem, this is an opportunity. At the very least – an opportunity to stop the deadly mathematics of future military losses before it’s too late,” Zelensky said.

He stressed that in the past two days, Normandy Four advisers and members of the security subgroup in the Trilateral Contact Group on Donbas met to discuss the resumption of a full ceasefire, but, despite the support of all parties, Russia refused to join their joint statement.

“At the same time, a proposal was made to meet at the delimitation line in order to see and understand the situation as accurately as possible. What should I understand? I go there every month. Mr. Putin! I am ready to go even further and invite you to meet anywhere in the Ukrainian Donbas, where there is a war. Glory to Ukraine!” Zelensky said, summing up his statement.

(MOSCOW) JUST IN: Russia’s FSB security service said on Saturday that it had detained a Ukrainian diplomat in Saint Petersburg for allegedly receiving classified information, in the latest flare-up of tensions between the neighboring countries #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Apr.18: Russia’s domestic intelligence agency said Sosonyuk had been caught “red-handed” during a meeting with a Russian national as he sought to receive “classified” information:

Russia detains Ukrainian diplomat amid tensions: A Ukrainian diplomat, a consul of Ukraine’s Consulate General in Saint Petersburg, Alexander Sosonyuk, has been detained by Russia’s FSB,” the security service said in a statement:

by French Press Agency – AFP

Daily Sabah: A Ukrainian soldier is seen at a fighting position on the line of separation from Russian-backed rebels near Luhansk, Ukraine, April 16, 2021. (AP Photo)

“Such activity is not compatible with his diplomatic status and is of clearly hostile nature towards the Russian Federation,” the FSB said, adding that Sosonyuk had been detained on Friday.

“In conformity with international law, measures will be taken against the foreign diplomat.”

In recent years Russia has detained a number of Ukrainian nationals on suspicion of spying but the detention of a diplomat is rare.

In recent weeks, tensions have escalated between Russia and Ukraine, with Kyiv accusing Moscow of massing troops on its border and seeking to destroy “Ukrainian statehood.”

Kyiv has been battling Russian-backed separatists in the east of Ukraine since 2014, and clashes have intensified since the start of the year, shredding a cease-fire agreed on last July.

Concern has been mounting that the long-simmering conflict could spiral back into wider fighting, and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy has asked the West for help.

(UKRAINE) NATO REPORT: As reported, on April 15, the Foreign Ministry of Ukraine expressed its resolute protest against Russia’s restrictions on freedom of navigation in the Black Sea #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Apr.18: NATO considers Russia’s actions to restrict access through the Kerch Strait and ban on navigation in the Sea of Azov a part of the country’s broader pattern of destabilising behaviour in the region and calls on Russia to stop provocations immediately:

NATO calls on Russia to allow freedom of navigation in Sea of Azov: North Atlantic Council Statement following the announcement by the United States of actions with regard to Russia

NATO calls on Russia to allow freedom of navigation in Sea of Azov

Issued on 15 April 2021

  1. NATO Allies support and stand in solidarity with the United States, following its 15 April announcement of actions to respond to Russia’s destabilising activities. Allies are taking actions individually and collectively to enhance the Alliance’s collective security:
NATO Flags

“Russia’s plans to restrict access to parts of Black Sea and Kerch Strait would be unjustified move, part of a broader pattern of destabilising behaviour. We call on Russia to allow freedom of navigation. NATO Allies do not and will not recognise the illegal annexation of Crimea,” NATO Spokesperson Oana Lungescu posted on Twitter.

Lungescu also cited the Alliance’s statement on Russia’s actions in the Black Sea and the Sea of Azov.

“We are concerned by reports that Russia plans to restrict access to parts of the Black Sea and the Kerch Strait. This would be an unjustified move, and part of a broader pattern of destabilising behaviour by Russia. We call on Russia to ensure free access to Ukrainian ports in the Sea of ​​Azov, and allow freedom of navigation,” the statement reads.

As noted, Russia has substantially increased its military presence on and around the peninsula since its illegal annexation of Crimea. Russia’s ongoing militarisation of Crimea, the Black Sea and the Sea of ​​Azov are further threats to Ukraine’s independence and undermine the stability of the broader region.

“We call on Russia to de-escalate immediately, stop its pattern of provocations, and respect its international commitments. NATO Allies do not and will not recognise Russia’s illegal and illegitimate annexation of Crimea. We fully support Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity within its internationally recognised borders,” the statement underscores.

Russia announced the closure from next week to October 2021 of part of the Black Sea in the direction of the Kerch Strait for warships and state vessels of other countries under the pretext of military exercises. This step is a gross violation of the right to freedom of navigation guaranteed by the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea. According to the Convention, Russia must not obstruct or impede transit through an international strait to ports in the Sea of Azov.

As the Ministry stated, such actions by the Russian Federation are another attempt to violate the norms and principles of international law to usurp the sovereign rights of Ukraine as a coastal state, as Ukraine has the right to regulate navigation in these areas of the Black Sea.

Visit to NATO by the Foreign Minister of Ukraine that afterwards the Foreign Minister will also took part in a meeting of the NATO-Ukraine Commission.
