Russia will never tolerate Ukraine’s membership in the European Union and NATO, so the chance of integrating Kiev into these structures was lost during the NATO Bucharest summit in 2008, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban said, APA reports citing TASS.

"Russia will never tolerate a NATO and EU member like Ukraine at its doorstep. The chance of integrating Kiev into these structures was lost during the NATO summit in Bucharest in 2008," Die Presse quoted him as saying in a conversation with former Austrian Chancellor Wolfgang Schussel.

"During the Bucharest summit, <…> we failed to successfully complete negotiations about Ukraine and Georgia’s accession, which meant that Ukraine lost its prospects for EU and NATO membership. Russia has been steadily gaining power since," he said. "It was foreseeable that Russia will prevent any attempt by Ukraine to integrate into Western organizations."
