In advance of the next NATO Summit in Washington in 2024, a new Atlantic Council “Memo to the President,” co-signed by more than 40 national security leaders, presents an array of measures that NATO can implement to help Ukraine win its war against Russian aggression, to guarantee Ukraine’s long-term stability, and to fortify Europe against further Kremlin aggression that directly jeopardizes the interests of the United States and its allies.

In partnership with the Atlantic Council’s Eurasia Center, the Kyiv Security Forum hosts a special event discussing the Atlantic Council’s new “Memo to the president” and how NATO can set a clear path for Ukraine’s membership.
