Russia warns Poland over EU, NATO remarks - Ifax
Russia warned Poland on Thursday that attempts to link European Union partnership talks with NATO membership for former Soviet states risked making the EU a hostage to the military alliance, local media reported.

Polish President Lech Kaczynski told Reuters in an interview on Wednesday that Warsaw will hesitate to lift a veto on EU partnership talks with Russia until EU powers agree to put Georgia and Ukraine on a clear path to join NATO.

"If Poland wants to make the EU a hostage to NATO then they are going about it in the right way," Interfax news agency quoted an unidentified senior Russian foreign ministry official as saying.
