MOSCOW, July 8 /TASS/. The NATO summit’s decisions to deploy battalions in Poland and the Baltic States and make NATO missile defense systems operational can be considered to be an act of aggression against Russia, Frants Klintsevich, the first deputy head of the Russian Federation Council Defense and Security Committee, told journalists.
"The deployment of NATO battalions in the Baltic States and Poland and the fact of brining the NATO missile defense system to the initial level of readiness are the obvious acts of aggression if things are to be called by their names.
"NATO decisions made today [on the Warsaw summit’s first day] will have an extremely negative impact on the global situation on the whole," Klintsevich went on to say.
"The summit had been called historical in the West even before it started. Perhaps, it is true: tomorrow we may wake up in a totally different reality," the Russian lawmaker said adding that the NATO summit had raised the degree of tensions almost sky-high without exaggeration.
"I do not rule out that it may take 10 or 15 years to return the world to a state in which it was the day before," Klintsevich said. "Perhaps, it’s not the right time or place to talk about our reaction, which will certainly follow. First and foremost, it is necessary to realize the consequences, which the Warsaw summit is bringing to the world," the lawmaker concluded.
