Russia warns Kiev against NATO integration

MOSCOW, April 1 (Reuters) - Russia warned Ukraine against integration with NATO on Tuesday, saying Kiev’s previous attempts to move closer to the defence alliance had had unwelcome consequences.

“(Past attempts) led to a freezing of Russian-Ukrainian political contacts, a headache between NATO and Russia and ... to a division in Ukrainian society,” the Russian Foreign Ministry said on the same day as NATO foreign ministers were meeting in Brussels.
