The Russian foreign ministry said in a statement

Russia says it is «seriously worried» by Ukraine`s policies, saying they`re worsening relations with Moscow, according to AP.

The Foreign Ministry says it`s particularly concerned by Ukraine`s support of Georgia during last month`s war with Russia and Ukraine`s blaming of Russia for starting the war.

The ministry said in a statement Thursday that the pro-Western government`s push to join NATO defies Ukrainians reluctance to join the alliance.

Russia and Ukraine have a long-running dispute about the right of Russia`s Black Sea fleet to use the Ukrainian port of Sevastopol.

Ukraine criticized Russia for sending its Sevastopol-based warships to Georgia and has threatened to cancel Russia`s lease of the port in the future.
