Russia does not want Ukraine to join NATO
Discussions have been going on for a long time about Ukraine joining NATO. However, Ukraine has not made any final decision on joining NATO. If Ukraine joins NATO, then according to the current situation, NATO forces will have a permanent presence on the borders of Ukraine. At the same time, Russia does not want Ukraine to join NATO. Estonia and Latvia are members of NATO. Both these countries were previously part of the Soviet Union. In the event of Ukraine becoming a part of NATO, Russia can be surrounded by its enemy countries from all sides. In such a situation, Russia does not want the expansion of NATO. Russia wants the military organization to withdraw its forces and military equipment from any countries that have joined NATO after 1997. If this happens, then about half of the countries of NATO will come under its ambit.
