5:07 pm
a threat. the problem for russia is that it's not up to a person to decide who does or does not join nato. it's up to nato member countries that said, ukraine's application for membership. the nate has been on the table since 2008. so there isn't any great rush to allow it to join may be one of the reasons being that when one nato member is attacked, it's john to says that others must come to its defense. there is no desire amongst the nato member countries for a full on military confrontation with russia. when that both ladies 1st met together as president back in the summer, that's the summit followed again a troop build up along the border with ukraine. and not summit managed to calm things down, but yes, the, by the ministration says it once a stable and predictable relationship with russia, that sort of best it can hope for. the french president says,
