Moscow Says Ready For Military Response If NATO Doesn’t Address Kremlin’s Concerns

Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov today warned NATO the Kremlin’s security concerns need to be addressed, or else.

“I said that we would find forms to respond, including by military and military-technical means [if NATO ignores Moscow’s concerns again],” the high-ranking Russian diplomat told TASS.

“I reaffirm this. We will have to balance the activities that are of concern to us, because they increase the risks, with our countermeasures,” Ryabkov said.

On December 17, the Russian Foreign Ministry released two Russian draft documents on the provision of legal security guarantees from the United States and NATO.

Russian President Vladimir Putin earlier called on NATO to begin substantive talks on reliable long-term security guarantees to Russia. He stressed that Russia needs legally binding guarantees because the West has failed to fulfill its verbal commitments.

Russia’s concerns focus mainly on stopping NATO’s encroachment on the Russian Federation’s near abroad.


And when you hear of wars and insurrections (disturbances, disorder, and confusion), do not become alarmed and panic-stricken and terrified; for all this must take place first, but the end will not [come] immediately.

Then He told them, Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. (Luke 21:9-10 Amplified Bible, Classic Edition)
