MOSCOW, December 25. /TASS/. Kiev’s plans to join the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) will not provide for the national dialogue in Ukraine and will complicate the country’s efforts to overcome the current social and economic crisis, Alexander Lukashevich, a spokesman for the Russian Foreign Ministry, said on Thursday.

“We are confident, that Ukraine’s Euro-Atlantic tilt will hardly provide for the country’s recovery from the profound social and economic crisis,” Lukashevich said.

“NATO ambitions will further strain the task, which the Ukrainian statehood faces, and it is the search for the national accord,” the diplomat added.

NATO’s eastward expansion will bring about a major military and political shift in Europe and Russia will have to take proportionate measures, Lukashevich noted.

“One has the impression that the leaders of Ukraine consider a rapprochement with NATO as an alternative to a normal relationship with Russia,” he said.

“NATO’s possible expansion eastwards will bring about a major military and political shift in Europe and the world in general,” Lukashevich said.
