In the US announced by the Republicans draft law on declaring Ukraine a “NATO+” country – this is a continuation of the “game” of the Americans with the Russians.
Republicans want to show their activity, said “Apostrophe” diplomat Konstantin Grishchenko.
The interlocutor noted that after obtaining the status of a “NATO +” state, Ukraine could receive large-scale assistance, but it can be provided without such an innovation.
“… Regarding the bill on granting Ukraine the status of “NATO +”, in order to provide assistance, it is absolutely not necessary for us to provide any status. That is, this is a continuation of the game by the Americans with the Russians: “When you ask a question like this, we will put it like that” , said the expert.
