Obama: Putin rassmativaet NATO and the EU as a threat to the Russian authorities

The US President Barack Obama expressed confidence that Vladimir Putin considers NATO and the European Union as a threat to Russian authorities.

“I think he’s wrong. I pointed out to him that actually a strong, United Europe working with a strong, outward-looking Russia — this is the right recipe,” said the American President on the air CBS News, adding that it has so far failed to “fully convince” Putin.

While Obama noted that for the unity of Europe far-right nationalism is very dangerous, in some cases, it can exploit such policies as Putin, who “is not always committed to the idea of European unity”.

Earlier Vladimir Putin called the main problem of Europe is that she gave a part of the sovereignty of the USA, refusing to uphold its own interests, transfers TV channel “Russia 1”.

“The problem of Europe in that it does not conduct an independent foreign policy. At all. She, in fact, refused. Delegated part of their sovereignty, may be one of the most important parts of their sovereignty to the block. The focus in this case is that it is not just a supranational body, and in fact this part of the sovereignty given to Europe is not even in NATO, as the leader of NATO – the United States,” Putin said.

In the text “national security Strategy of the Russian Federation” approved by the decree of Vladimir Putin, says that Russia is ready to develop relations with NATO if the Alliance stands ready to consider Russia’s interests. “The Russian Federation is ready to develop relations with NATO on the basis of equality in order to strengthen common security in the Euro-Atlantic region”, – quotes the document TASS.
