MOSCOW -- Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov of Russia said yesterday that Moscow will do all it can to prevent the former Soviet republics of Ukraine and Georgia from joining NATO. Lavrov warned that the bids by Russia's two neighbors to join the Western alliance could worsen the Kremlin's relations with the countries supporting them. "We will do all we can to prevent Ukraine's and Georgia's accession into NATO and to avoid an inevitable serious exacerbation of our relations with both the alliance and our neighbors," Lavrov said on Ekho Moskvy radio. A NATO summit last week rejected starting Ukraine and Georgia on the path to membership despite strong support from the United States. (AP)
