It is even more clear that Putin will never let it happen, it is in the “theoretically impossible” section of options. Having NATO nuclear rockets 1km off Russian border is not a possibility, everyone who is mentally healthy should understand that.Assurances that Ukraine cannot join Nato is a no go, that is clear.
That’s actually the only issue of relevance in this entire conflict - Ukraine per se is not at all important for Putin. Just a no-NATO buffer zone - and this is fair enough.
