Promising NATO membership to Ukraine was mistake: Borrell

Beussels, March 11 ( /Sputnik) The West has made a number of mistakes in its relations with Russia, including when it promised a NATO membership to Ukraine, EU foreign policy chief Josep Borrell said. “I am ready to admit that we have made a number of mistakes and that we have lost the opport ty of Russia’s rapprochement with the West … There are moments that we could have done better, there are things that we proposed and then could not implement, such as the promise that Ukraine and Georgia would become part of NATO …I think it’s a mistake to make promises you can’t deliver,” Borrell told the TF1 broadcaster. /SPUTNIK VP PRT
