War in Ukraine: Bill Clinton called NATO’s eastward expansion the right move

Former US President Bill Clinton called NATO’s eastward expansion the right move, given Russia’s war against Ukraine.

“I’m more convinced today than I was then that we did the right thing,” he told CNN. “We did the right thing at the right time. And, if we hadn’t done that, this crisis might have happened even faster.”

“When I did what I did, I offered Russia not only a special partnership with NATO, but the prospect of joining NATO, arguing that the biggest problems for our security in the future will come from non-state actors or from authoritarian states that they will sell chemical, biological and nuclear capabilities to terrorist organizations,” Clinton said.

After the collapse of the Soviet Union, Eastern European countries began to join NATO, the first being the Czech Republic, Hungary and Poland.
