Now Zelensky has come out and said he no longer thinks that Ukraine will join NATO.

No, he didn't.

Isn't this the very thing that Putin wanted in the first place.

No, it isn't.

No buffer states belonging to NATO. 

Or "independent countries" as they're known in some circles.

Russia invading Ukraine had very little to do with NATO/the EU.

Estonia and Latvia directly border the RUS and are both NATO nations.

As others have pointed out, this is not what he said. He just recognized that Ukraine being admitted to NATO is not at all imminent or guaranteed - which was true before the invasion. Nothing has really changed there.

I stand corrected, but still very very concerned.

Apparently he's been on this since the beginning.

It was interesting to hear the arguments from the host (another panelist?). She's clearly intelligent, but also a good illustration of how disinformation can be easily spread.
