Dmitry Medvedev says the War between Ukraine and Russia wouldn't end, even if Ukraine Announced they No Longer Wish to join NATO
"Renouncing its participation in the North Atlantic alliance is now vital, but it is already insufficient in order to establish peace.”
Dmitry Medvedev, the former President of Russia, has said that Russia would not attempt to ease or stop its military offensives in Ukraine, even if the country claimed it no longer wished to join NATO. Medvedev continued to say that Russia is the one waiting for Ukraine to continue with talks if they meet “certain conditions.”
The debate about Ukraine joining NATO has been one that was had even before the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Dmitry Medvedev said, "Renouncing its participation in the North Atlantic alliance is now vital, but it is already insufficient in order to establish peace.” He added that Russia would continue to campaign and work until its goals are achieved.
Vladimir Putin has openly announced his wishes of “denazifying Ukraine.” Both the West and Ukraine have deemed this wish a baseless pretext for an unnecessary war. There have since been multiple rounds of talks, but no progress has yet to be made. Dmitry Medvedev said, "This (talks) will depend on how events unfold. We were ready before to meet (Zelenskyy).
