Cheney lashes out against Russia

September 07, 2008|From Times Wire Reports

Vice President Dick Cheney said Russia's actions in Georgia were an "affront to civilized standards" and called on Western nations to resist any effort by Moscow to use its energy supplies to intimidate its neighbors.

Visiting Italy, Cheney also said the expansion of NATO would continue despite Moscow's opposition.

Russia has objected to NATO's promise of future membership to Georgia and Ukraine, former Soviet republics.
