That’s according to Dmitry Peskov, a Kremlin spokesman, who spoke to French TV channel France 5 about the threat the US-led bloc poses to Russia, while simultaneously emphasizing that Russia wants to be a part of a thriving Europe.

Peskov told French journalists during a program called “Vladimir Putin: Master of the Game” that Ukraine joining NATO would be the worst-case scenario.
