Russia has grounds to support NATO's expansion

Russia has no reasons to support the expansion of NATO but one - after its expansion NATO will become a very weak organisation from the military point of view. Vyacheslav Nikonov, president of the Politika Foundation, spoke about it on Tuesday at a press conference in RIA Novosti.

In his opinion, after the expansion, relations between Russia and NATO will depend in many respects on what the North Atlantic Alliance will be like. At the present time, it is impossible to forecast the future of NATO, said Nikonov. Western experts, too, do not have the answer to this question. "The future of NATO is still vague - it can become a more influential organisation or more marginal when nothing in this world depends on us," said Vyacheslav Nikonov.

At the same time, the president of the Politika Foundation believes that after November this organisation will be more anti-Russian because of the entry of new countries into it. This fact does not presuppose a higher level of Russia's relations with this organisation," believes the expert.
