Yevhen Marchuk, a former Ukrainian prime minister who leads the newly founded NATO Cooperation Secretariat, says Ukraine needs to “lay the legal groundwork” for joining the bloc.

Recently, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin said his country was on the path to joining NATO, and planned to renounce its non-aligned status despite expected fierce resistance from the Kremlin.

However, the Ukrainian parliament has yet to approve any move to finally end  Ukraine's military neutrality, while the leaders of NATO have made few or no clear comments on Ukraine’s chances of joining the alliance, Ukraine Today informed.
