MOSCOW, December 23. /TASS/. Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev believes that Ukraine hasted to endorse a bill cancelling non-aligned status. He wrote so at his Facebook page.
“I have just managed to write about a bill cancelling Ukraine’s non-aligned status that the Verkhovna Rada (Ukraine’s parliament) has hastily endorsed. They are eager to join NATO,” Medvedev wrote.
The premier recalled that the US president had signed an anti-Russian law granting the right to impose anti-Russian sanctions by any American president at any time. “As in the case of the Jackson-Vanik amendment our relations with the United States will be spoiled for decades,” Medvedev noted, adding that “the Ukrainian president has moved in the Verkhovna Rada a bill abandoning off-bloc status for his homeland. In fact, this is a bid for NATO entry, turning Ukraine in Russia’s potential military rival. Both these decisions will have extremely negative after-effects. Our country will have to respond to them.”
