"They (in NATO) think that Ukraine and Georgia will not escape from them whereas the problems with Russia should be settled now… Of course they cannot show that they conceded under the Moscow’s pressure therefore they will make good statements, give promises to Ukraine and Georgia, and may be outline their Atlantic future, but there will be no radical decision”, said Rogozin.
"Nobody in the Alliance is glad at the prospects of Ukraine’s and Georgia’s integration into NATO. They say: why does America lobby admission of Georgia and Ukraine but not Mexico, for example? At the same time the Europeans see what happens to the Ukrainian economy: enterprises will be closed soon, and the country will become bankrupt. Europe has no resources to sustain Ukraine. And they will not invite these scandalous bankrupted regimes to NATO… Moreover when the important partnership with Russia is on the stake”, said the Envoy.
On Tuesday foreign ministers of 26 NATO countries did not provide the NATO Membership Action Plan to Kiev and Tbilisi but approved a new format of relations with them: so-called “annual national programme”.
