MP Hanna Hopko believes that Ukraine’s membership in NATO should become a unifier for Ukrainian politicians.

She said this in an interview with Ukrainian Den newspaper.

"This is a top priority, this is something that should unite all politicians to prevent a recurrence of the situation in 2008. Then, at the Bucharest summit, we were promised the policy of ‘open doors’, but there was no consolidation inside our country and discussions on the Euro-Atlantic integration continued," Hopko said.

The lawmaker believes it is necessary to inform the public, especially in eastern Ukraine, to convey to people this is "an opportunity to finally get peace and security."

"Ukraine can offer NATO a very valuable experience, which we get in the ‘hybrid war’," the MP said.
