MOSCOW, October 2 – Novosti. Twitter users were outraged by another call by the former Ukrainian ambassador to Germany, Andriy Melnyk, to German Chancellor Olaf Scholz to immediately grant Kiev “limited NATO membership for Moscow’s nuclear deterrence.”
Many commentators criticized the demand of the Ukrainian official, rightly noting that such a step would only aggravate the international situation and bring the nuclear apocalypse closer.
“And we urge you, Mr. Chancellor of Germany, to prevent this at all costs. A country torn by conflict cannot be part of an alliance. Never!” a reader wrote.
“This will not happen, which is great. I don’t want to think about a war between two nuclear powers,” the second one supported him.
“Damn it, this lunatic is probably going to start World War 3. Can someone shut down the internet for this aggressive warmonger already?” – the third was indignant.
“According to the eighth article of the treaty, the acceptance of a country involved in an international conflict is impossible. Stop constantly making absurd demands, Mr. Ambassador,” the user besieged Melnik.
“NATO must self-destruct, and American troops must leave Europe . Go home and don’t come back,” another user urged.
“No, Germany should not allow itself to be dragged into this conflict. Therefore, in my opinion, Ukraine does not belong in NATO,” said another.
“Mr. Melnik, please shut your mouth. It’s already sickening to listen to you. Do I live in Ukraine or in Germany? Why are you trying to determine the policy of Berlin,” the commentator emphasized.
“Ukraine should by no means become a member of NATO. What an irresponsible and stupid idea,” the reader summed up.
Yesterday, 11:16Germany raises alarm over possibility of nuclear war
On September 30, President Vladimir Putin and the heads of the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics, Kherson and Zaporozhye regions signed agreements on the inclusion of these regions into Russia . Against this background, Zelensky said that Kyiv would immediately apply for an accelerated entry into NATO. However, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg recalled that in order to accept a new member into the military bloc, the consent of all 30 participating countries is required, although he promised that NATO would concentrate efforts on providing assistance to Kiev .
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky fired Andriy Melnyk from his post as ambassador to Germany in July. The diplomat is known for his incorrect statements. So, he repeatedly demanded that Berlin provide Kiev with weapons, compared German Chancellor Olaf Scholz with “offended liver sausage”, later expressing regret over these words. Melnik was replaced by Aleksey Makeev, who previously served as the government’s special representative for international sanctions policy.
