“They promised us that NATO would not advance an inch towards the east, but they deceived us and acted in another way,” Putin added, in a statement carried by Russia Today.

He added that the United States and NATO ignored Russia’s main concerns in their response to security guarantees.

He accused the West of “using Ukraine as a tool to contain Russia and curb its economic progress.”
