Russia: 'Horror' if Georgia joins NATO

  • Russia warns of ‘horrible’ conflict if Georgia joins NATO

"Georgia's accession to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation may trigger a awful conflict and lead to catastrophic consequences". Medvedev, who was Russia's president at the time, sent soldiers which defeated the Georgian military in five days.

Military conflict between Russian Federation and Georgia erupted in 2008 after Georgian troops attempted to regain control of South Ossetia, a breakaway province supported by Russian Federation.

Recall that on 5 January 2008, Georgia simultaneously with the presidential election held a referendum on the question of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation membership.

The two-day visit to the Georgian capital by Czaputowicz, Lithuanian Foreign Minister Linas Linkevičius, Latvia's top diplomat Edgars Rinkēvičs, and Ukraine's Deputy Prime Minister Pavlo Rozenko included meetings with Georgia's president, prime minister, parliamentary speaker and foreign minister, in addition to a trip to the administrative boundary line with the separatist region of Tskhinvali/South Ossetia, the foreign ministry in Warsaw said. "Nowadays no country can change the borders of another country by force", said Polish Foreign Minister Jacek Czaputowicz.

The only United Nations member states to recognize the breakaway regions are Russia, Nicaragua, Venezuela, and Nauru. The EU's engagement with Georgia is a true partnership based on political association and economic integration, as well as on a strong friendship between our peoples.

China retaliates with tariffs on $16 billion worth of U.S. imports
The US and China have been trying to restart high-level talks that broke off after Trump followed through on his tariff threats. The US is also considering further tariffs on another $200bn worth of Chinese goods which could come into effect in September.

Earlier this summer, North Atlantic Treaty Organisation leaders discussed closer ties with Georgia and Ukraine at their summit in Brussels. Medvedev said. "Do they understand the possible implications?"

Russian president Vladimir Putin has said on many occasions that Russia regards NATO's expansion into Georgia and Ukraine with "the utmost disapproval".

Under NATO rules, countries with territorial conflicts can not join the alliance.

But since 2008, when North Atlantic Treaty Organisation leaders promised Georgia it would one day join the European Union and North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, the Western dream of the small Caucasus country has been a source of anger for its northern neighbour Russian Federation.

In the decade since the conflict, Moscow has failed to implement the ceasefire agreement brokered by the European Union and "has further reinforced its illegal military presence on the ground", it said.
