President of Russia Vladimir Putin stated that if Ukraine enters NATO, the arrival time of the alliance’s missiles to Moscow will shorten up to 7-10 minutes as RIA News reported.

Putin stated that NATO puts its geopolitical interests above the interest of other countries despite the relations with them. He noted that the interests of Russia are not considered since the decision on the extension was made despite the earlier reached agreements.

Meanwhile, the president of Russia noted that there are no guarantees that Ukraine will not become a part of NATO. That is why Moscow should take into account such possibility and build relations with Kyiv on the basis of it. The Russian leader stated that he does not consider the talks on Ukraine’s entrance to NATO as “idle talk” because he knows how the communication of Kyiv and Washington is built.

Putin underlined that at least half of the Ukrainian citizens do not support the aspirations of the authorities to access NATO. According to him, it is “smart people” who do not want to turn their country into a subsidiary coin and become collateral damage.
