Will Ukraine become US non-NATO ally?

The Embassy of Ukraine in the US has said that a draft bill has been presented at the US House of Representatives that would grant Ukraine the status of “major non-NATO ally” until the country becomes a full member of the Transatlantic military alliance.

 

According to an embassy statement, the new bill would strengthen US support for Ukraine’s sovereignty, territorial integrity, as well as increasing American defence assistance under simplified terms, by “providing military hardware, selling lethal weapons to Ukraine’s Armed Forces, as well as enhancing Ukraine’s ability to confront Russia’s cyberattacks.”
