MOSCOW, January 22 /TASS/. There are no threats to Russia’s security despite the fact that the United States and NATO are building up military potential in Europe, Russia’s First Deputy Defense Minister Army General Valery Gerasimov said on Friday.
"There are no threats to Russian security. At the same time, we are calling attention to the fact that the United States and NATO continue using anti-terrorist rhetoric for building up the army units in Europe where the US air defense missile system is also being deployed," Gerasimov said in an interview aired by the Rossiya 24 television news channel.
The US has announced plans to reject the deployment of the fourth stage of the missile defense system in Europe and to refocus towards protection against potential North Korea missile attacks. Infographics by TASS
