(Сбылась мечта идиота:)

(CNN) -- Seven eastern European countries have been welcomed into NATO as the military alliance said it was turning its attention to new challenges and threats.

Foreign ministers from Bulgaria, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Romania, Slovakia and Slovenia attended Friday's gathering in Brussels, Belgium, and watched their nations' flags being raised at NATO's headquarters.

"This is a historic day," said NATO Secretary-General Jaap de Hoop Scheffer at a news conference after the ceremony, hailing the newly expanded organization as an alliance of solidarity, shared values and collective security.

"We rejoice. We are glad. We are happy," a giddy Scheffer said.

The leaders of the new NATO members presented documents to cement their membership earlier in the week. Their accession brings the alliance's membership to 26 countries, stretching from the Bering Strait to the Baltic Sea.

Eduard Kukan, the Slovakian foreign minister, said an expanded NATO made sense.

"The world has changed ... so I think it's only natural that the alliance is also changing in order to face the new challenges, to face the new threats and face the new situation in the world," he said.

"From now on, 26 allies will be joined in a commitment to defend each other's security and territorial integrity," said NATO Secretary General Jaap de Hoop Scheffer.

"This is the strongest, most solemn commitment nations can undertake."

U.S. President George W. Bush welcomed the seven Eastern European countries to the alliance Monday, pledging to maintain a unified Atlantic front against terrorism the same way the allies once faced their Soviet adversary.

"Our unity and our commitment to freedom carried us to victory in the Cold War, and they showed us the way to victory in the war on terror," Bush said in a White House ceremony Monday afternoon.

"Together, Europe and America can lead peaceful nations against the dangers of our time."

Russian fears
The 55-year-old alliance was originally set up by the West to counter the Soviet Union's military might during the Cold War.

CNN's European Political Editor Robin Oakley said the accession of the Baltic states of Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania -- and the acceptance by the European Union next month of 10 new members -- effectively draws a line under that period of history.

In a symbolic move, Belgium immediately sent four F-16 fighters to Lithuania to patrol the three Baltic states -- who were left without their own fighter planes when they broke from the Soviet Union in 1991.

That deployment has raised concerns in Russia, which has never been happy about NATO's eastward expansion. All three nations were Soviet republics and hosted Red Army troops barely 15 years ago.

Russian Defense Minister Sergei Ivanov said in a magazine interview last week that Moscow might revise its defense policy unless the alliance revises its military doctrine.

And Konstantin Kosachyov, the head of the international affairs committee of Russia's parliament, told the Russian news agency Interfax on Monday that NATO "has recently been making steps that are unfriendly to Russia."

NATO has tried to convince Moscow the expansion is not directed at Russia, but NATO Secretary-General Jaap de Hoop Scheffer, who was at the White House for Monday's ceremony, told CNN much needed to be done to strengthen NATO-Russian ties.

"We need, in the interests of NATO and in the interests of Russia, a strong partnership, which means that we not only discuss the easy things but also the harder nuts to crack in that relationship," he said.

The alliance invoked its collective self-defense clause after the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on Ne

First, the Baltic nations will be full fledged EU members in a year.
Second, what's the problem with the former Sov. block countries being admitted into NATO. I think that Ukraine and Russia should follow the same road and become NATO partners and maybe even later full Alliance members against the rising terror threats. It would be wise to create one European security perimeter by the same token they did it here in North America.

Сус, за Румынских бойцов еще Гитлер говаривал, что выгоднее иметь Румынию в качестве врага, чем в качестве союзника, потому что проще послать 1-ну дивизию для разгона румын, чем 4 - чтобы подгонять сзади и смотреть чтоб с поля боя не убежали...

та Россия тут не при чём. Они всегда были и будут от неё далеки. Конечно, в теории, звучит заманчиво - прогресс, шаг вперёд, союз стран, борьба против терроризма, но под этим всем много чего.
Просто ущербно всё эт как-то...Кста, Румыния и прибалтийские государства всегда к сильным под крыло стремились.
