MOSCOW, April 17. /ITAR-TASS/. NATO's anti-Russian political rhetoric has surpassed the propaganda of the times of the aggression against Yugoslavia, the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Thursday.
In recent time, NATO issued some publications, in which the Alliance tried to present causes of the crisis in Europe in its usual tendentious manner, traditionally shifting responsibility to Russia, the ministry noted.
Russia never evaded cooperation with the North Atlantic Alliance, proposing to build it on the basis of equality. "Despite disagreements (NATO expansion, deployment of missile defense systems and the alliance’s non-compliance with international laws), Russia during all these years honestly developed cooperation with the alliance in areas of common interests (fight against terrorism, drug traffic and piracy, response to natural and manmade disasters and cooperation on Afghanistan), making efforts to eliminate the heritage of the Cold War. What NATO did is in the facts that speak louder than words," the ministry noted.
