Russian-American historian Yuri Felshtinsky spoke in an interview with Yuri FelshtinskyUnian about what Joe Biden's visit to Ukraine means.

"Ukraine will be in NATO, but the next day after this war is formally ended.

NATO will not vote to include a country at war with an unresolved territorial conflict. This is a utopia.

But in reality, Ukraine is already in NATO. Ukraine this year has created the most combat-ready army in Europe, and this army is armed with Western weapons, which the Alliance supplies. At the same time, thousands of Ukrainian military are now being trained in different countries in Europe and North America.

Also, Ukraine is already in the EU, because several million citizens, albeit as refugees, are already working in Europe.

These are all "achievements" of Putin. Another thing is that everyone would prefer this process to be peaceful and calm rather than swift and through war.

As for the arms supplies that were discussed, they are expected to last for many months. There is a certain minus in this, since I would like to have all this on the battlefield tomorrow. But at the same time, this indicates that America and Europe have plans for long-term cooperation with Ukraine. No one proceeds from the fact that this war should end in a month, "otherwise, we will stop deliveries." On the contrary, everyone proceeds from the fact that this war can last for a long time, deliveries are designed for long periods, and Europe and the United States provide and will assist Ukraine as much as necessary."
