MOSCOW, May 27. /ITAR-TASS/. Negotiations on a date of holding a meeting of the Russia-NATO Council in Brussels at the ambassador level have yielded no results so far, a source at the Defense Ministry has told ITAR-TASS.
The official recalled that Russia’s chief military representative at NATO, Valery Yevnevich, who on April 3 was recalled to Moscow for consultations, remained in the Russian capital.
“General Yevnevich will go back to Brussels only after NATO has revised its decision to freeze military cooperation with Russia on far-fetched charges over alleged interference in Ukraine,” the official said.Deputy Defense Minister Anatoly Antonov, who early last month declared Yevnevich had been recalled, said that further cooperation with the alliance along military lines would be arranged depending on the partners’ practical steps to “deter” Russia.
On May 19, Russia’s permanent mission at NATO urged an early meeting over the aggravation of the situation in eastern Ukraine. For its part, the alliance suggested holding the meeting on May 27.
As the chief of the Defense Ministry’s international cooperation department, Sergei Koshelev, told ITAR-TASS earlier, originally Russia would like to hold the Council’s meeting on May 25. NATO’s proposed date — May 27 — drew objections from Moscow.
“It will take place on a later date,” Koshelev said. “We shall present our vision of the situation, and our NATO partners will tell us how they see the state of affairs.”
