According to RIA Novosti, on the 13th local time, Russian Vice Foreign Minister Ryabkov said in an interview with RIA Novosti that NATO’s intention to keep approaching the Russian border was shocking, which was also detrimental to the stability of the European situation.
The behavior of the United States and NATO allies reminds people of their desire to repeat the Cuban missile crisis. In addition, NATO continues to deploy military bases and various weapons near the Russian border, including modern and high-precision long-range strike weapons.
Ryabkov also said that Russia had proposed some alternative confrontations to NATO, including not deploying weapons and equipment near the Russian border, stopping confrontation and military exercises. But Russia needs legal guarantees, and Russia is also making continuous efforts to do so.
