MOSCOW, November 26 /TASS/. Russia considers the call of Polish Foreign Minister Witold Waszczykowski to annul the 1997 Russia-NATO Founding Act to be provocative and extremely dangerous, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Maria Zakharova said on Thursday.
"I would like to call your attention to a statement made by the Polish foreign minister who called for recognizing as invalid the 1997 Russia-NATO Founding Act," she said.
"We consider such steps to be part of an ideological campaign to brainwash the public opinion in the West ahead of a regular NATO summit in Warsaw," Zakharova stressed.
"We certainly consider such statements to be extremely dangerous and extremely provocative. They are evident of desire to make irreversible the alliance’s course towards military deterrence of our country. They can also be regarded as an attempt to legitimize NATO’s attempts to change the existing balance of forces in Europe," the Russian diplomat said.
