Georgia.Discuss

The possibility of Ukraine and Georgia joining NATO,as noted by the American military expert and researcher at Defense Priorities Sasha Glaser, is unfavorable for the United States. This is due to the high risk of Russian attacks on these countries after their admission to NATO membership. If this happens, the United States will be forced to intervene in the military conflict in accordance with NATO Article 5. In the future, the war between the United States and the Russian Federation may go to the nuclear level. The American authorities cannot afford this.

In 2008, the NATO summit in Bucharest wasa statement was made on the entry of Ukraine and Georgia into NATO in the future. Russia, in particular, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, in response to this, stressed that in this case it would do everything to protect its borders. And the country kept this promise. In 2008, she fought a war with Georgia, as a result of which she established control over the separatist regions of Abkhazia and South Ossetia. In 2014, according to a military expert, she "annexed Crimea and provided military support to pro-Russian separatists in eastern Ukraine."

It is for this reason, according to the author,the US presidential administration should abandon the idea of ​​expanding NATO to include the two aforementioned countries. This will help prevent World War III.
