MOSCOW, May 20. /TASS/. NATO did not make promises to admit Ukraine to the Alliance, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov told the Federation Council session on Wednesday.

Lavrov reminded that a session of NATO-Ukraine Commission has recently taken place. "Apart from rhetoric and assurances that reforms in Ukraine on security services and army will be supported, no concrete promises were made about any process of entering NATO," the foreign minister noted. "Certain conclusions can be drawn from this, and such assessments are confirmed by our contacts," he stressed.

Lavrov added that similar situation could be witnessed in Ukraine’s relations with EU. "A Ukraine-EU summit recently took place in Kiev. The document adopted as a result of the summit did not mention Ukraine’s accession to EU, emphasis is made on the Association Agreement which enters into force in 2016," the foreign minister noted.
