“Supergod is place on the territory of Ukraine, for example, the base of the national missile defense system [missile defense] of the United States, to put here a few battalions of Patriot, put here a barrier of NATO units. And then, please, you can come into NATO. And I know that then we will be more secure than the Baltic States, than Bulgaria, even more than Greece,” he said.
According to him, while Ukraine has unsettled territorial problems, NATO membership is the country “does not Shine”, these measures will help to bring the decision. However, Badrak not sure that the Western allies decide to do. “You need very much to get closer with the West,” — the expert specifies.
The head of the Center for army, conversion and disarmament believes that the deployment of American bases on the territory of Ukraine is possible in the comprehensive work of the authorities, the Diaspora and lobbyists in the United States.
