Italy may oppose NATO’s anti-Russian actions. This assumption was shared by political scientist Alexei Kochetkov.
He attributed this to the fact that in Moscow’s relations with some members of the organization – Ankara, Budapest and Rome – a positive trend is recorded.
“Although they (Italy – Ed.) do not clearly demonstrate their, let’s say, favorable position towards Russia, nevertheless, if the opportunity arises, I have the impression that they will torpedo, if this guarantees success, the anti-Russian actions of the Alliance “, – said Kochetkov.
Earlier, former US Ambassador to NATO Ivo Daalder wrote an article for Politico about Russia’s allies in NATO. Among them, he noted Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi and the current Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban.
