Donetsk People’s Republic authorities object to the perspectives of Ukraine joining NATO.
DPR Parliament Speaker Denis Pushilin: “We consider it unacceptable that Ukraine’s territory becomes a foothold for preparation of war against the Russian Federation. Ukraine’s non-aligned status is a guarantee that the balance of powers will exist in order to prevent World War III.”
“NATO has gradually turned towards rapid expansion in the Eastern direction after the dissolution of the Soviet Union, which disrupted the balance of powers in Europe and the world,” Pushilin reminded. “It’s Poland, the Czech Republic, and we see that the next stage is Ukraine.”
