"The United States has repeatedly said that Russia cannot join NATO," said Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov commenting on the reports that the Russian Federation was once invited to the alliance.

A Kremlin spokesman was asked to comment on an article by former US President Bill Clinton in Atlantic magazine about alleged future membership of NATO after the collapse of the Soviet Union.

"I do not have such information, but I know exactly that the American side has repeatedly stated that such membership is not possible. In fact, it is de facto announced that the doors for membership are closed, which makes it impossible in principle, "said a Kremlin spokesman.
