NATO to contain Russia, provokes the arms race and Europe returns to the days of the cold war, Moscow would have to react, Deputy foreign Minister Alexander Grushko.

«What makes NATO on its Eastern flank, it can be described as the creation of a military capacity to project power in the direction of Russia. Speaking in military terms, we are talking about certain military preparations. This, of course, very disturbing, because we are forced to react politically and militarily, taking military-technical measures. Thus, the development which started with the Alliance, it could lead not only to restoring the political-military climate of the cold war, but is fraught with new race of arms», — the diplomat said during the panel discussion «the Future of NATO and Russia’s interests» at the club «Valdai».

«NATO will not be able to fit into the requirements of modern architecture, by and large, the problem is that NATO feels comfortable in the situation during the cold war, and in practice today, and military construction recreates the atmosphere», — he stressed.
