Grushko: NATO confrontational measures will not remain unanswered

15
The confrontational measures undertaken by NATO towards the Russian Federation will surely receive a military technical response, leads Kommersant statement of the Russian representative in the alliance of Alexander Grushko.



“We are being offered a confrontational agenda, in which we are absolutely not interested. NATO must understand that from a military point of view, all these measures will only have the opposite effect. Because it is obvious to all sensible people (especially military ones) that we will certainly have a military-technical response from our side, ”Grushko said.

"Russia will take all the necessary measures to reliably ensure defense capability," he added.

According to the diplomat, “the actions of NATO in Eastern Europe clearly worsen the situation.” After all, in essence, “it is about using military means (for example, rotation of military personnel and large-scale exercises) to try to create new dividing lines on the continent, prevent the implementation of the big Europe project and strengthen European dependence on the US,” he said.

The buildup of military activity near the Russian borders leads to the erosion of trust between countries.

“The fundamental problem is that no cosmetic improvement in confidence building measures can drastically change the negative trends in military security. Only the refusal of NATO from the current policy and military construction in the spirit of deterring the times of the Cold War can drastically improve the situation and create prerequisites to start a conversation on confidence-building measures, ”Grushko said.

Earlier, he confirmed plans to hold a Russia-NATO Council meeting on July 13. According to Grushko, Moscow "is counting on a frank and serious conversation, primarily on issues related to increased NATO activity along the Russian borders."

    There is a suspicion that after the summit in Warsaw no meeting of the Russia-NATO Council will take place, and the initiative to cancel this event will obviously not come from Russia. Actually, the future policy of NATO in relations with the Russian Federation will become clear.

      The Russia-NATO Council, and in general any dialogue between them, is a sickle on the genitals of a certain influential group of people ... a constructive conversation should not be expected.

      It depends on what they decide. If they intensify the confrontation, there will be nothing to talk about. And if you confine yourself to four battalions and general promises, you can try to conduct a dialogue.

      What are the bucks? Now the Baltic states are hysterical. With the British exit from the EU, budgets of all levels are crashing. They promised the mongrels as much as they invest. And even if they elect Trump as the US president in addition, the mongers will have to maintain NATO troops at their own expense. .Russia blocks transit through the Baltic states and what kind of shisha do you order to live on? That's hysterical, to pump out more money from Uncle Sam.

    Yes, actually, we have been trying for a long time to respond to the threat of NATO. Because of this, the modernization of the army, the creation of new units and so on began.
    And nothing further will change.

    All the time we are engaged only in declarations, as in Soviet times, we will overtake catch-up, create, and effort. But NATO and America silently do their dark deed. It promotes hatred of Russia in the countries of the former socialist camp and republics of the USSR. For the introduced battalions in Poland and the Baltic states, we will create three divisions, but this does not push NATO from our borders. They are getting closer. It remains for them to accept Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine into NATO to squeeze the Old Man in Belarus and the western border will move to Moscow at arm's length. And it is not far off. In the case of Ukraine, it was not necessary to stop the Donbass in September 2014, Ukrainians were not as zombied as they are now and the army as such was not. Now the buildup is beginning in Abkhazia, Moldova, Central Asia, and again we have declarations and cap-offalism. Now, if in Ukraine NATO got its teeth and our troops stood near the borders of Poland, they had no thoughts in their minds of bringing battalions to Poland to the Baltic states, and the rhetoric would be more peaceful.

      Hmm ... After the statement Poroshenko-well, they will definitely laughing :

      "Petro Poroshenko, in an interview with the Polish TV channel, said that the naval forces of Ukraine fully control the waters of the Atlantic and Pacific Ocean.
      “NATO and the EU countries can now not worry about the aggression from Russia - the Ukrainian navy will completely neutralize all existing threats.
      President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko signed a decree on "Overlapping possible zones of presence of the Russian fleet in the waters of the Atlantic and Pacific oceans."

    I think that it is necessary to talk, to discuss, to make some kind of joint decisions. But you can’t believe them. You have to make the army ready to fulfill its obligations at the click of a button. After all, first of all, NATO is preparing for war with Russia, and not vice versa. Russia has never been aggressive towards NATO and has always been looking for contacts for joint cooperation. Moreover, Russia tried to ensure reliable security in Europe. That's exactly what it tried, but did not allow ...

    Gentlemen officers! You noticed that after Putin’s visit to the PRC, the anti-terrorist exercises of Russia and China began immediately in the Moscow and then in the Smolensk region. What is surprising, with the landing. I haven’t heard something about terrorists in our westernmost region of Russia, namely in Smolensk or in Belarus. And you? It seems to me that all this is not accidental. It would be possible to conduct exercises closer, in Transbaikalia, in the Far East, in Primorye or in Central Asia at last. And then suddenly, at the very western border of Russia. There are no accidents. We conclude. The rear is ready to help. And I think not 4 battalions like NATO. The option is being worked out.
