Alexander Grushko will be the new permanent representative of Russia at NATO



NEWS. Deputy Foreign Minister Alexander Grushko will be appointed as the new representative of Russia to NATO. About this reports on Friday the newspaper "Kommersant", citing sources at the headquarters of the alliance in Brussels and the Russian diplomatic mission. Grushko will replace Dmitry Rogozin, who at the end of December of last year was appointed deputy prime minister in charge of the development of the defense complex.

“Russia has finally decided on the candidacy, Grushko is coming to us,” the edition quotes an informed NATO member. News that the choice fell on Grushko, the interlocutor of the publication was “very happy”: in the Russian Foreign Ministry Alexander Grushko oversees the issues of pan-European and Euro-Atlantic organizations and knows the subject thoroughly. “Grushko is a professional and has been engaged in NATO for a long time, he really doesn’t need to explain anything,” said a source in an interview with journalists. “I’m sure he will quickly get up to speed.”

The Russian Foreign Ministry "Kommersant" confirmed the appointment of Grushko to the post of permanent representative, refusing, however, to disclose the details of the permutation. In the Kremlin, however, the publication reported that the presidential decree on this account has not yet been signed.

The place of the representative of the Russian Federation at NATO has been vacant for the last three months. All this time there was a search for a suitable candidate. The unofficial list of applicants, according to officials polled by Kommersant in various government agencies, featured three senators at once: First Deputy Chairman of the Federation Council Alexander Torshin and heads of the Senate International Affairs and Defense and Security Committees Mikhail Margelov and Viktor Ozerov. The governor of the Moscow region Boris Gromov was named as another candidate.

Alexander Grushko will be the first career diplomat in this post. According to the newspaper, the first official event in which he will take part in the new status will be the meeting of the Russia-NATO Council at the level of foreign ministers, scheduled for April 19. The publication also notes that it is now Grushko who will have to deal with the NATO-Russia missile defense talks that have come to a dead end.

Alexander Grushko is 56 years old, he graduated from the Moscow State Institute of International Relations (MGIMO) and has been working at the Russian Foreign Ministry since 1977. In 1995-1996, he was head of the department of the Foreign Ministry's security and disarmament department. From 1996 to 2000, the year was the head of the Russian delegation on military security and arms control in Vienna. In 2001-2002 - Deputy Director, in 2002-2005 - Director of Pan-European Cooperation. Since September, 2005 - Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of Russia, ITAR-TASS reports.

    The main thing is not to change the course that Russia is following.

      It is he, if I am not mistaken, "puffed" on interviews for the placement of warehouses in Ulyanovsk.

      The "stages of the long journey" are somehow not impressive, it is in these areas that Russia's defense capability has suffered the greatest "damages."

          vorobey, I am in favor of appointing another chef to NATO responsible for the "introduction" of purgen into juices and compotes, as well as into champagne at briefings wassat
          And no one is against the "chance", the main thing is that "snapped" actively and clearly bent the line of Russia.

          Such information allows a little look at this candidacy from a new "angle" smile


          Grushko, Victor Fedorovich (1930-2001) - father, Soviet intelligence officer, colonel general, former first deputy chairman of the KGB of the USSR.


          This is his father good

        In 1995-1996 he was the head of the department of the Foreign Ministry’s department for security and disarmament.The peak of the collapse of our defense industry just fell on these years. So he was the one who, smiling at the west, told with foam at his mouth that the Russians no longer carry threats and now they make pots instead of rockets in our factories.

      Vanek,
      Hi Ivan. I am sure that the candidacy of the future representative, in addition, was also agreed with Rogozin, and that, for sure, could only recommend a person whose way of thinking is consonant with Rogozin! drinks

          All the more so Medvedev appointed Rogozin to the post of special representative for Transnistria So he (Rogozin) can advise, then he knows who to advise.

      It’s unlikely. They’ll talk more likely. And NATO has already solved their problems. We will have their base and they will get Syria. It’s not for nothing that Putin went for a cardone. The State Department writes the notes, and our musicians are all the same. and we’ll register telephones. And soon, we’ll pay for our Khrushchev, real estate tax will be introduced. So we tighten our belts and keep quiet in a rag and don’t chat, otherwise grandmas will not pay taxes.

    Why do we even need a representative in NATO? NATO is an enemy of Russia, no matter what they try to explain to us. But, if it’s impossible without it, Grushko must follow Rogozin’s example and plant a poplar alley.
