"Several important documents were signed today. I would especially like to note our joint declaration regarding Ukraine's membership in NATO. This is the first such document that we adopt with the aim of accelerating our Euro-Atlantic integration. We have reaffirmed with this declaration that we will strengthen cooperation to ensure NATO standards in Ukraine. The Czech Republic has reaffirmed support for our country so that we become a full member of the Alliance as soon as the conditions allow," Zelensky said.
