Putler Still Has One Working Poodle in Central Europe

The heads of nine European NATO members on Sunday issued a joint statement backing a path to membership for Ukraine in the U.S.-led security alliance, and calling on all 30 NATO nations to ramp up military aid for Kyiv.
The nine NATO countries in Central and Eastern Europe, fearful that Russia could target them next if it isn’t stopped in Ukraine, urged a response to the annexation.

The leaders of Czechia, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, North Macedonia, Montenegro, Poland, Romania and Slovakia published a statement on their websites Sunday saying: “We support Ukraine in its defense against Russia’s invasion, demand (that Russia) immediately withdraw from all the occupied territories and encourage all allies to substantially increase their military aid to Ukraine.”

An observant reader will notice that there is one Central European NATO nation absent from the list.


  1. Actually, two NATO members are missing from the list: Bulgaria and Hungary.

  2. Yes, but Bulgaria may be considered to be in Southeastern Europe, with Greece and a sliver of Turkey. Neither one of them were in on the statement.
