Ukraine, Russia: “NATO back to the Cold War”

Moscow “will respond to threats with all available means”

NATO summit in Vilnius “demonstrates that NATO is back to Cold War patterns”. This is how the Russian foreign ministry comments on the NATO summit which paved the way for Ukraine’s entry into the alliance when the war ends. Moscow “will carefully analyze the results of the NATO summit and will respond to threats with all available means”. The countries of the Alliance, he notes, “have undertaken to continue to supply more and more long-range weapons to Kiev to prolong the conflict”. The Russian Federation “will continue to strengthen the country’s defense system and military organization in response to NATO threats”.

“It is wrong and potentially dangerous. By giving security guarantees to Ukraine, NATO is meddling in Russia’s security,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said, after the G7 countries said they would offer security guarantees to Kiev , reports the Russian site ‘Izvestia’.

Russia, in a confrontation also at the level of communication, is planning to exhibit the NATO equipment it destroyed in Ukraine in front of the embassies of the Western countries that supplied them to Kiev. This was announced by the president of the Russian Duma, Vyacheslav Volodin, defining the “proposal to install burnt equipment” next to the embassies of those countries that send them to Ukraine as “particularly interesting”.
