According to a Russian newspaper report, Mr. Putin lost his temper with Mr Bush at a meeting on the final day of the Bucharest summit, telling him: “Do you understand, George, that Ukraine is not even a state.” Claiming that most of Ukraine’s territory was “given away” by Russia, Mr. Putin supposedly also said that if the country joined NATO it would “cease to exist.” A Kremlin spokesman at the meeting says he did not hear the exchange.
