Ukraine not to wait for NATO membership in the next 10 years

American President Joe Biden said this week that the United States will play a more direct role in the diplomatic settlement of the conflict between Russia and Ukraine. However, this may be a challenge for the American leader. Biden, in particular, will have to settle the issue of Ukraine's desire to join NATO, AP writes, citing its own sources.

But senior State Department officials have told Ukraine that NATO membership is unlikely to be approved in the next decade.
