Russia ready to confront the West over NATO enlargement

9 April Russian foreign minister Sergei Lavrov said in an interview for Russian liberal radio-station Echo Moskvy: “We will do everything in order to prevent Ukraine and Georgia’s accession to NATO, to prevent unavoidable sharp deterioration of our relations with the alliance [NATO] and with its leading members and with our neighbours that is tied to the possibility of making that decision.” 

Well, what can I say. Clever Russian nationalists and statesmen (who are often the same) used to say that Russia is too weak to confront the West, so it should avoid open conflict and gather its strength in order to come back one day fully. Nowadays, I can see, that Russians do not deem it necessary to hide their ambitions any more. This is what happens when you engage in constant appeasement of imperialism infected countries.
