MOSCOW, February 10. /TASS/. Growing NATO military presence in Europe is an unpromising path, Director of the Russian Foreign Ministry’s Non-Proliferation and Arms Control Department Mikhail Ulyanov told a news conference on Wednesday.
"Russia does not pose a real threat for NATO countries. The fact that someone has phobias bordering on ridiculousness is not our problem," Ulyanov said. "I am confident that our colleagues [from the defense ministry] will adequately react to any changes of the military-political landscape in Europe. If NATO builds up its forces, something similar may be expected from our side. However, this not a very promising path," he added.
