• Russia urges Ukraine not to join NATO


    MOSCOW: Russia on Wednesday called for Ukraine to stay out of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization alliance, insisting that a “non-aligned status” was in the interests of the ex-Soviet country. “There is no doubt that [Ukraine’s] non-aligned status is important not only from the point of view of ensuring stability in the European Atlantic but also from the point of view of fundamental national interests of the Ukrainian people,” Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told reporters.
