Russian President Vladimir Putin has expressed strong opposition to the possibility of Ukraine joining NATO, pointing to the serious threat posed by the alliance’s expansion towards Russian borders. He made these statements during his speech at the plenary session of the Valdai international discussion club.
“We have always been against (Ukraine’s entry into NATO – TASS note), and this position has certain serious grounds, since the expansion of NATO to our borders directly threatens our security. This is a serious challenge for the security of the Russian Federation,” the Russian leader emphasized.blockquote
Putin emphasized that NATO is not only a political bloc, but also a military-political bloc, and the close proximity of its infrastructure to Russian borders poses a serious threat to Russia.
Earlier, Putin called Zelensky’s applause for the Nazi in the Canadian Parliament disgusting. More about this read the material Public News Service.
