The more Ukraine will have potential allies, the less evil will be done by Russia. Such opinion in the comment to the "GORDON" was expressed by the ex-president of Georgia Mikheil Saakashvili.
"I think Russia would not be able to make more than it could already make. The more Ukraine will have potential allies, the less evil would be done by Russia. The pacification will never work in a case with Putin", – Saakashvili noted.
In his opinion, Kazakhstan and Belarus will be torn away from Russia more and more to save economy of their countries.
"Poroshenko is simply a brilliant diplomat, and Lukashenko’s and Nazarbayev’s visits to Kiev is his victory. Russia comes into the deepest crisis which its president Vladimir Putin will not overcome . I think that Lukashenko and Nazarbayev do not want to repeat Putin’s fate. Kazakhstan and Belarus do not feel special love to Russia long ago. However now these negative emotions come to light more and more”, – the politician considers.
Saakashvili also emphasized that the Russian Federation became the enemy of Ukraine even before its refusal of the extra block status. In his opinion, membership of Ukraine in NATO would prevent current situation.
"Even before the refusal of Ukraine from the extra block status Russia itself became the enemy of Ukraine. The extra block status was entered by Yanukovich in parallel with destruction of the Ukrainian statehood and with emasculation of army. The main question which Russia has to ask itself is whether –Russia would dare to attack if Ukraine was in NATO. It does not dare to attack even a small member of NATO – Estonia", – the ex-president of Georgia summarized.
