Press Secretary of the Russian President Dmitry Peskov believes that Ukraine’s aspiration to become a NATO member should be perceived as a threat to the Russian Federation.
He stated this in an interview with the Izvestia TV channel. A spokesman for Vladimir Putin noted that the United States supports the desire of Ukrainians to join the Alliance and the European Union for the same reason.
“This is potentially very dangerous for us, because NATO will thus continue to move its military infrastructure towards our borders,” Peskov said.
Putin’s spokesman took part in the work of the Eastern Economic Forum (EEF). There he also spoke about the relationship between the United States and Ukraine. He stressed that Kiev and Washington are working together against Moscow.
