MOSCOW, June 30. /TASS/. New decisions on the deployment of the NATO forces are unlikely to be made at the Alliance’s summit in Warsaw, Russia’s Permanent Representative to NATO Alexander Grushko said on Thursday.
"I don’t think that any decisions completely different [to the already taken ones] will be taken," he said.
"The region is determined: it’s first of all the deployment of four battalions in the Baltic states and in Poland. It’s also bilateral agreements between the United States and a number of East European countries within the framework of the European reassurance initiative according to which a brigade of troops will rotate in and out on a continual basis on the eastern flank. Apparently, the course for the required military exercise momentum will be continued, and the decisions to establish the so-called headquarters coordination cells are being consistently implemented," the diplomat said.
According to the diplomat, NATO’s strengthening in the Black Sea area, including through the involvement of non-Black Sea countries, will prompt Russia to take additional precautions.
"Of course, we want the Black Sea, despite all the difficulties, to remain a sea of ··cooperation and interaction...," he said. "If NATO continues to strengthen (in the Black Sea), especially through the involvement of non-Black Sea countries, this will make us take additional precautions with taking into account the strategic location of Crimea and our interests in the south."
