MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Reportedly NATO will offer Ukraine great assistance opportunities, but hardly facilitate any progress on its membership bid at the July summit in Lithuania.

Officials and diplomats of the alliance are planning to come up with a proposal that will include immediate support measures for Ukraine, but will not give the country the so-desired member status, according to the Western media outlet.

Source familiar with the matter said the solution will be presented at the NATO summit in Vilnius from July 11-12.

Germany, unlike the United States and the United Kingdom, remains the main opponent to Ukraine’s accession, the media stated. Berlin believes that a country involved in an all-out conflict with a nuclear power is far from a good candidate for NATO membership.
