At the 2008 North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit held in the Romanian capital of Bucharest, member states pledged that Ukraine and Georgia would join the alliance in the future.

The Russian prime minister described NATO's eastward expansion as a major security threat to Russia.

"And it is an absolute challenge", - said the Prime Minister, who, as President, sanctioned in 2008, the input units of the Russian 58th army in South Ossetia, and the outbreak of hostilities on Georgian territory.

Russian forces entered two breakaway Georgian regions in 2008, which remain garrisoned by Russian troops to this day, something Moscow says is in keeping with local people's wishes, but which the West and the Georgian government calls an illegal occupation.

"Georgia once again calls on the Russian Federation to stop its illegal actions on the territory of Georgia and to fulfill its global obligations, in particular, to revoke the recognition of occupied Abkhazia and South Ossetia as "independent states" and to fully implement the August 12 ceasefire agreement mediated by the European Union", the statement of Official Tbilisi reads.

Russian PM Dmitry Medvedev has said that a bad conflict could emerge from Georgia's accession into the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation bloc and noted that there was no real justification of such risk.

Prominent Georgian politicians are keen for their country to join the Western military alliance, but have seen chances of joining hampered by Russian territorial incursions. Poland fully supports these policies, the FM stated, as well as Tbilisi's cooperation with North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, and is willing to offer further help in the reform of the Georgian defence sector. We understand that if any other country claims that they are part of its national territory, this may have severe consequences.

In turn, earlier the President of Russia Vladimir Putin said that Moscow negatively reacted to the entry of Georgia and Ukraine into North Atlantic Treaty Organisation.

Back in 2008, Margvelashvili said, the West believed Russia's military campaign against Georgia "was an isolated move which will not be repeated against other countries. and then we witnessed what Russian Federation did in Ukraine in 2014". "It [Russia] is a direct aggressor".
