The West once promised Russia not to expand NATO to Eastern Europe. The expansion has now reached the Russian border, making the situation very serious, academic Jonathan Power told Sputnik.

Jonathan Power, associate professor at Transnational Foundation for Peace & Future Research talks to Sputnik radio about the dangerous situation the world is heading to due to NATO’s expansion.

The West once promised Russia that it will not expand NATO to the Eastern Europe.

However, that promise was broken when President Bill Clinton decided to expand NATO’s membership to former members of the Soviet Union’s Warsaw Pact.

Jonathan Power talking to Sputnik said, “It’s been going on since the time of Bill Clinton. What is extra ordinary in my mind about President Clinton was that on one hand he was trying to build up relationship with President Yeltsin and he had some success with that, but then he pulled out this bird out of the sky called the ‘expansion of NATO’ and since then despite criticism, continued the NATO expansion.”

“Now it has expanded all the way till Russian borders.”

Power said that world is in danger of heading for a big car crash. He said that he doesn’t always agree with everything that is being said and done on the Russian side but he does criticize the West more severely.
