French Diplomat Concerned About Russia's Intentions Toward Ukraine, Moldova

PARIS, France -- French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner is expressing concern that Russia, riding high after its victories in Georgia, may target other neighbors, such as Moldova and Ukraine.

French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner is concerned about Ukraine and Moldova.

"There are other targets that we may assume to be Russian targets, in particular Crimea, Ukraine, Moldova," Kouchner, whose country holds the European Union presidency, tells Europe 1 radio, according to Bloomberg News and Reuters.

AP says Kouchner also called on Moscow to reverse its "irresponsible decision" to recognize the independence of two breakaway regions in Georgia.

The United States, which has sharply criticized Russian President Dmitry Medvedev's decision, just delivered 34 tons of humanitarian supplies to Georgia.
