Russian leader Vladimir Putin believes that the development of NATO infrastructure in Ukraine would mean crossing Moscow's red lines. Dmitriy Peskov, Putin's press secretary said so as quoted by TASS.
"The topic of potential expansion of NATO military infrastructure on the territory of Ukraine has been repeatedly mentioned by President Putin. President Putin said it was beyond the same red lines that he had repeatedly said about before", reads the message.
Apart from that, Peskov claimed that the Kremlin could take action in return, in order "to maintain the security of two states", namely Russia and Belarus.
Earlier, President of Belarus Aleksandr Lukashenko criticized Ukraine's intention to join the NATO. According to him, this will open "a new front" for his country.
"We are opening a new, in the old days, front. We see what they are doing. But not all that our fugitives have run there - there are more and more training camps where they are purposefully training (and not only fugitives) to work on Belarus, as the intelligence services say," Lukashenko said.
