On June 29, in the framework of the military edition “Fight for Ukraine” the Kyiv Security Forum holds an online discussion dedicated to the NATO Summit taking place in Madrid these days. The distinguished guests will talk about the expected decisions of the North Atlantic Alliance and the prospect of Ukraine's NATO membership.

KSF discussion will focus on the following questions:

  • Is NATO preparing for a direct confrontation with Russia?
  • What new steps will the Alliance take to support Ukraine?
  • What will mean the confirmation of the “open door” policy for Ukraine?
  • What will Ukraine's integration into the Alliance really look like?
  • What changes should be expected in NATO's new Strategic Concept, a new document that sets out the Alliance's long-term trajectory?
