BREAKING: Ukraine takes step closer to NATO membership by joining Cyber Defense Centre

Ukraine has reportedly become a member of NATO's Cooperative Cyber Defense Centre of Excellence, which brings the nation closer to becoming a full member of the organization, per Zero Hedge.

Ukraine’s foreign ministry said: "Today the National Flag of Ukraine is officially raised at the Headquarters of the NATO Cooperative Cyber Defense Centre of Excellence in Tallinn, marking official accession of Ukraine to the CCDCOE."

The message reportedly went on to thank Western nations, who are responsible for fast-tracking Ukraine’s potential membership within the organization. Zero Hedge reported that it was just over a year ago that 27 NATO member states had agreed to provide member status to Ukraine following its subsequent blocking of membership by Hungary.

The report noted that the US military had admitted that it has been carrying out offensive cyber operations in support of Ukraine. The first statement that was revealed on this issue was released in June 2022, which reportedly revealed that the Pentagon and US intelligence were much more involved with Ukraine against Russia than was originally thought, per Sky News.

The National Security Agency (NSA) and the US Cyber Command Director General Paul Nakasone shared with Sky News that “[w]e’ve conducted a series of operations across the full spectrum: offensive, defensive, [and] information operations." He apparently went on to say that this included “offensive hacking operations.”

Zero Hedge said that this may mean that NATO, as a whole, is involved in similar cyber operations against Russia. 

Consequently, the Kremlin could see Ukraine’s membership in the CCDCOE as yet another example of the West's military alliance working to construct infrastructure inside Ukraine.
