MOSCOW, September 05. /ITAR-TASS/. Head of the Duma Committee on international affairs Alexei Pushkov told Rossiya-24 television on Friday that he does not think that the United States might station its military bases on the territory of Ukraine.

"Theoretically, it is possible "on a bilateral basis" without asking the consent of the other NATO member states. But in that case it would have been "casus belli"(a Latin expression meaning "an act or event that provokes or is used to justify war") or a direct challenge to Russia," the MP said. Therefore, the United States is unlikely to agree to have its bases there, Pushkov said.

"Since Russia poses no threat to the United States, bringing the US infrastructure close to Russia would deal a colossal blow to long-term relations between Russia and the United States," Pushkov explained. The Obama administration is not likely to do that, he added.
