Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Thursday that his country demands from NATO to present answers over actions in Eastern Europe carried by the union after NATO has promised to strengthen the defense abilities of its Eastern European members.
“We have asked questions to the North Atlantic military alliance. We expect not only answers, but such answers, which are based on the respect of mutually agreed rules,”- said Russian Foreign Minister.
Turning to Russian armed forces presence at Ukrainian border, Lavrov said that Russia has a right of moving his armed forces in its territory, and that after the military trainings military units will return to their usual places.
NATO General Secretary Anders Fogh Rasmussen noted that after the annexation of Crimea, further invasion into Ukraine will be a historical mistake by Russia, which will deepen Russia’s isolation from the international society.
According to Rasmussen, the deepening of Russian invasion into Ukraine will cause far-reaching consequences in relations between Russia and the West.
