MOSCOW, June 26. /ITAR-TASS/. NATO is pushing for the escalation of military-political tensions on the Russian-Ukrainian border under the pretext of the latest events in the neighboring country, Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova said on Thursday, June 26, commenting on the just-concluded meeting of the NATO foreign ministers in Brussels.
“Instead, [they] have embarked on a conspicuously provocative course to build up Ukraine’s military potential which has been used, as we know, against civilians in the south-east of the country,” Zakharova said.
“In parallel, under the pretext of the events in Ukraine, [they] are pushing for the escalation of military-political tensions near the Russian border. Once again, calls were made for the all-round mobilization of resources and capabilities for collective self-defense even though there are no viable arguments proving the existence of threats to any of the NATO countries from Russia,” she said.
