Poland's Sejm, the lower house of the country's parliament, has unanimously passed a resolution expressing its support for Ukraine's accession to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). The resolution, adopted on June 16, received overwhelming support, with 443 deputies voting in favor, while only two voted against and seven abstained. 

The resolution highlights the loyalty of the Ukrainian people and their right to determine their own path of development. It affirms the Sejm's full support for Ukraine's European and Euro-Atlantic aspirations.

The document acknowledges the progress made by the Ukrainian armed forces in strengthening their capabilities and aligning with NATO standards. 

From a military standpoint, the resolution emphasizes the benefits of Ukraine's accession to NATO for the Alliance itself. It underlines the importance of the upcoming summit in Vilnius, which is seen as a pivotal event for NATO-Ukraine relations and a platform to discuss the country's future.

Drawing on the example of Finland and Sweden, the document suggests that the procedure used to invite these Nordic countries to join NATO could also be applied to Ukraine. 

The resolution anticipates the first meeting of a new Ukraine-NATO Council, which could potentially take place in Vilnius and include the participation of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

This council would serve as a platform for further discussions and cooperation between Ukraine and NATO.
