Why Russian cannot join NATO?
Soviets tried to join NATO in 1954 and were turned down with explanation that "the unrealistic nature of the proposal does not warrant discussion". Then in 2000, Putin suggested the same thing to Bill Clinton and "Mr. Clinton said 'Why not?' But the U.S. delegation got very nervous."

The reason Russia was rejected is either due to the members not being unanimous in the invitation or due to the government of the nations applying not meeting the standards listed.

Russia wants to be recognized as a great power on par with America, and with the same privileges that a superpower like America has. America sees itself as the leader of the free world, and would like its allies to accept American leadership.

Russia doesn't want to be ruled by anybody. America doesn't want anyone in NATO that won't be ruled. Hence, America can't let Russia into NATO, and Russia won't agree to be put under NATO's restrictions.
