MOSCOW, November 17. /TASS/. The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) prefers not to mention Kiev’s violation of the Minsk ceasefire agreements, and instead whips up anti-Russian sentiment, a deputy official spokesperson of the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Monday.
“Unfortunately, we see that the alliance is not seeking a constructive discussion of the acute problems, instead preferring to feed the anti-Russian propaganda machine with the aim of justifying plans to reinforce defense potential of the bloc and boosting NATO military presence near Russia’s borders, creating serious risks for security in the Euro-Atlantic region,” Maria Zakharova said.
The spokesperson expressed concerns that “NATO fails to mention Russia’s consistent efforts to stabilize the situation in Ukraine and also the deteriorating social and economic situation in the country’s south-east and in fact the region’s blockade on the part of the Kiev authorities.”
“The alliance’s statements fail to mention the violations by Ukraine’s troops of the Minsk agreements, the usage of military hardware and equipment against the civilian population,” she said.
