MOSCOW, February 27. /TASS/. Statements made by NATO supreme commander in Europe Philip Breedlove that Russia uses frozen conflicts as an instrument of political pressure are absurd, Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said on Friday.
"It is absolutely obvious that Breedlove’s aforementioned statements go in line with mass anti-Russian propaganda campaign, the only aim of which is to provide some justification for NATO’s aggressive policy towards Russia, for the steps that the alliance takes in expanding its military potential," the diplomat noted. "Such statements are so absurd and far from reality that they don’t require any separate comments," Lukashevich concluded.
"What is really confusing and troubling is that lately, NATO’s military officials are more and more often making political assessments and program statements," the diplomat stressed. "Facts likes these make us think about who really is behind the current vector of NATO’s policy development," Lukashevich said.
