Posner explained why Russia has not joined NATO

TV presenter and journalist Vladimir Pozner has commented on the statement of a member of the Bundestag of the CDU/CSU Christian Schmidt, who offered again to discuss Russia's accession to NATO, as seriously mentioned in the 1990-ies. The statement of the TV host is in his interview on the website of the daily mail.

He recalled that the idea of Russia's accession to the EU and NATO supported Boris Yeltsin and later Vladimir Putin.

In his opinion, today Russia is not interested in joining the North Atlantic Alliance and the European Union.

While Posner believes that this rapprochement between Russia and the West would be a boon, but today it seems the TV presenter is unreal.

Vladimir Pozner is a citizen of three countries — Russia, USA and France. In 1991-1997, the presenter lived in the United States, where he worked at CNBC, and then returned to Russia.
