"We are talking about a document, and no one hides what this document means by the time Ukraine joins NATO. That is, the benchmark for NATO membership remains. Accordingly, the main threat to our country remains. And it remains, and even becomes more relevant, one of the reasons that made it necessary to conduct a special military operation," Putin's spokesman said.

Peskov also stressed that the leadership of Ukraine knows what actions eliminate the threat to Moscow.
