MOSCOW, November 27. /TASS/. NATO fully understands that Turkey’s downing of a Russian bomber creates risks to the entire North Atlantic Alliance, Russia’s Permanent Representative at NATO Alexander Grushko said on Friday.

"I think the NATO countries are aware that Turkey is dragging them into a dangerous game by this criminal action, since this ally (Turkey) is bound with all the 20 NATO member states by very serious security liabilities both in the military and in the political spheres, and the key article - article five - creates a threat of a risk to the alliance," he said in an interview with the Kommersant FM radio station.

He said the situation was very serious. The last attack by a NATO country on Russian and Soviet aircraft took place in the early 1950s. "Quite naturally, in his statement Stoltenberg called for calmness and said this situation should be settled by Moscow and Ankara," Grushko said. "It proves that NATO, as an organization, is seeking to maximally dissociate itself from this incident".
