Russia’s Deputy Foreign Minister, Sergei Ryabkov, said today that if Russia does not get security guarantees it seeks from NATO, it’s answer “will be military . . .”
One of Moscow ‘s main concerns is that weapons systems previously banned by the INF Treaty may soon appear in Europe, at the suggestion of NATO partners, Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said in an interview with RIA Novosti.
“That is, it will be a confrontation, this will be the next round, this will be the appearance of such from our side.
Now they do not exist, we have a unilateral moratorium, we call on NATO and the United States to join this moratorium,” he said.
Lack of progress towards a politico-diplomatic solution to this problem will lead to the fact that the answer will be military and military-technical, the diplomat added.
Within the past 72 hours, the situation between Russia and the West (over Ukraine) has deteriorated very fast. Stories
