On 27-28 May, the Centre for International Security organized the NATO Spring Academy “NATO Strategic Concept 2030: Alliance and Ukraine in a New Security Environment” in Severodonetsk for students from Donetsk and Luhansk regions. At the invitation of the Centre for International Security, Kateryna Zarembo was the speaker at the NATO Academy event.
Kateryna Zarembo believes that students from Eastern Ukrainian universities, who are interested in Ukraine’s Euro-Atlantic integration, are ‘NATO ambassadors’ to Eastern Ukraine. “It is them, not strangers on TV, who are more likely to be trusted by their friends and acquaintances if they say that Ukraine, as a NATO member, will not have to host foreign bases or pay more for security and defense than it does now. Similarly with ‘gentle Ukrainization’, they can promote ‘gentle Euro-Atlantic integration’ so that the attitude towards NATO ceases to be an irritating issue. Given that there is already a ‘generation gap’ in the East in people’s attitude to the Alliance, it is important that the positive stance of today’s youth extends to other age groups”, Kateryna Zarembo shared her opinion after the event.
