KIEV, July 1 (Itar-Tass) - Ukraine determines relations with NATO and Russia on the basis of the non-aligned status, Defence Minister Pavel Lebedev said.

In an interview with Kommersant-Ukraina on Monday, Lebedev said, “We’re building relations with NATO and the CIS countries, including with Russia and Belarus, due to our non-aligned status.”

“We take part in peacekeeping operations. The ministry supports any peacekeeping operations, primarily under the U.N. auspices,” the minister said.

“Peacekeeping operations help servicemen obtain experience to work in trouble spots. Kiev thoroughly studies each proposal to join the U.N. missions. The key factors are safety of our peacekeepers and the conformity of their participation to national interests and legislation of Ukraine,” Lebedev said.
