“For France, Ukraine’s NATO membership would be undesirable,” Hollande told reporters.
Ukraine's non-aligned status was secured by a law signed by then-president Viktor Yanukovych in 2010. The law stipulated that Ukraine would not seek to join any military-political alliances. Petro Poroshenko, the current President of Ukraine, has stated that his predecessor's decision was a strategic mistake.
In December, 2014 Ukraine cancelled its non-aligned status and resumed its course to join NATO. The country will have to finalize its decision to join NATO in the next five to six years, Poroshenko said.
A senior US official told RIA Novosti in December that Ukraine's NATO membership is not being considered by the alliance.
