BRUSSELS, June 16. /TASS/. Russia "in the spirit of goodwill regularly informs interested countries, including via OSCE channels, about its military drills," Russian Permanent Representative to NATO Alexander Grushko said Thursday.
Grushko was commenting on the alliance’s claims that the regime of military transparency was allegedly disrupted by Russian surprise combat readiness checks.
Grushko noted for Russia there is no difference between NATO forces deployment near the Russian borders on a rotational or permanent basis because it is banned by the Russia-NATO Founding Act.
Grushko commented on the alliance’s decision to deploy on the eastern border on a rotational basis four multinational battalions.
Grushko said NATO continues encouraging the Ukrainian government to sabotage the Minsk Accords by its actions.
He commented on the comprehensive aid package to Ukraine approved by NATO defense ministers on June 15.
