US: Ukraine’s membership in NATO is none of Russia’s business

Entrance of Ukraine to NATO is the issues to be resolved by
members of the alliance and Russia
cannot interfere in it, Sean McCormack, the spokesman for the US Department of
State stated at a briefing in Washington commenting
on the foreign policy of Russia
approved by President Dmitriy Medvedyev.

“US President’s position
was very clear at the Bucharest Summit regarding the support of Ukraine’s and Georgia’s membership in NATO. We,
as well as other NATO countries, are holding consultations within Russia-NATO
council, but Russia
does not have a vote. NATO membership is the issues to be decided by members of
the Alliance,” McCormack
said

    That’s frankly ridiculous. The inclusion of a powerful military alliance right at Russia’s borders (in a country with millions of ethnic Russians) Very much IS Russia’s business.
