In light of Ukraine’s restated aspirations for NATO membership, we stand by our decisions taken at the Bucharest Summit and subsequent Summits. We will work together to enhance and adapt our distinctive partnership under the NATO-Ukraine Commission, which will contribute to building a stable, peaceful and undivided Europe. An independent, sovereign and stable Ukraine, firmly committed to democracy, and the rule of law, is key for Euro-Atlantic security.

Induction of Ukraine into NATO would be an extremely dangerous development.

I don't know about dangerous. It certainly would anger Russia.
But it certainly bears asked "why?" Does the US need yet another commitment?

Europe can deal with that big dog should smacking it with a belt piss it off. Ukraine needs to stay out of NATO for obvious reasons. Just trying to move to the EU sent in Russian troops, are they dumb or what? Putin would invade full throttle before the vote if they tried again. NATO promised not to move east after the Soviet union left Germany.
Ukraine entering Nato would cost much much more. Nato would lose every nation up to Poland before they could be slowed down, inside Poland and might even take everything up to Germany.
