Russia Confirms It Will REACT To NATO’s Military Activities Near Its Borders 

MOSCOW, Russia – Russia wants to re-establish relations with the United States and the EU, but will react to NATO activities close to its borders, said Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.

During his press conference in Moscow, the Russian chancellor stressed that while Russia is interested in improving relations with its western partners, the country will react to NATO’s approach to the Russian borders.

“We remain interested in re-establishing normal relations with the US and the EU on the principles of equality and mutual respect for the interests of each party. We will continue to react appropriately to the increase in NATO military activities and to the approximation of the military infrastructure of the alliance,”the minister said at a news conference in Moscow.

Relations between Russia and Western countries have worsened because of the situation in eastern Ukraine, where a coup d’état took place in 2014 and also because of the Crimea, which later reunified with Russia after a referendum.

Since then, the US, the European Union and other countries have adopted several packages of sanctions against Russia. The EU and the US have imposed restrictions on Russian citizens, companies and entire sectors of the economy. Moscow responded to these measures by imposing restrictions on imports of food products from the countries that support the sanctions.
