President Vladimir Putin stated that Russia does not plan to occupy Ukrainian territories, but to defend the right of the Ukrainian peoples to self-determination.

He noted that Moscow cannot allow Kiev to acquire nuclear weapons and further militarize itself, which constitutes a danger to the country’s security.

The Russian head of State stressed that the continued eastward expansion of the North Atlantic Organization (NATO) is unacceptable to Russia.
