Ukraine has repeatedly said that it wants to receive a political invitation to the Alliance at the NATO summit in Vilnius (July 11-12), although it appreciates that joining until the end of the war is out of the question.

The head of the Ukrainian delegation to the NATO Parliamentary Assembly Yehor Chernev believes that at the summit Kyiv may receive an invitation to the Alliance "with a certain delay".
