Nah, there wasn't a war in the Donbas and we weren't training their soldiers in Poland for years...
Definitely time to be praying.
At the risk of being a contrarian, this is just wrong. Ukraine hasn't, historically, been admitted to NATO for a variety of reasons - not the least of which is widespread corruption.NATO commits to future Ukraine membership, drums up aid

Admitting them now is simply thumbing NATO's collective noses at Putin.
They shouldn't be admitted just for the sake of being admitted. They should go through the same vetting and voting process as everyone else and meet all of the same requirements.
I agree but lets take a moment to realize what's at stake here. People are dying every day due to Russia's invasion. It's not like this is a situation where the standard timeline is going to help. They should be given terms, and if they don't abide by them they should be kicked out just like any other country should be kicked out if they fail to honor their commitments. I have no problem with Ukraine getting an expedited admission. It doesn't impact me at all, but there are people in Ukraine who will undoubtedly suffer the longer it takes.
