MOSCOW, November 25. /TASS/. Kiev’s drive for joining NATO will lead to further aggravation of the situation in Ukraine and it will not improve the Ukrainian people’s life, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov said on Tuesday.
“I’m sure that what the Ukrainian leadership announced will lead to further aggravation of the situation in Ukraine. This will not ensure security in Ukraine and this will not improve the Ukrainian people’s life,” he said.
Ryabkov was commenting on Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko’s statement on conducting a referendum on the country's accession to NATO.
“This is the result of illusions, the Ukrainian leaders and many people in the West live in, the illusions that the geopolitical Western game is all of this and people’s life is nothing,” Ryabkov said.
“I regret that these leaders are enthralled by such illusions,” he said.
