'Ukraine Joining NATO Could Trigger All-Out War'

In other developments in Ukraine - the country's steadily paving its way towards NATO membership. Parliament in Kiev has voted to drop the law which forbids the country from joining any military blocs, which has been in force since 2010. Soon after being elected president, Petro Poroshenko said the country would join NATO in the future. Russia has already said that such membership could turn Ukraine into a potential enemy.

Although the headline is sensationalist, the observations made in the clip are sound ones. In a divided country, remaining neutral is the best course of action at present. NATO should never have expanded East, which has gone against the Western promise made at the end of the Cold War.
