I would say that it is not NATO expands to the East, the East on NATO, because he sees in the Alliance a big guarantee of security, prosperity and democracy. And Russia needs to think about what motivates these countries to make such decisions and we must support the freedom of choice of countries that have identified their own future”, – said Alvargonzalez.
