In 1997 the act of the Russia-NATO assumed political commitments that the new member States will not be available for NATO forces and not become defensive structures. These commitments are not binding. First, were accepted as political commitments and not legally binding. Secondly, were adopted without us. We will never agree on the limits to government were of the second category in NATO. Thirdly, the new situation means that These agreements have been violated by the Russians, who attacked Georgia, and is currently attacking Ukraine ".
