SEVASTOPOL, October 5. /TASS/. NATO is actually fighting against Russia in Ukraine, Secretary of Russia’s Security Council Nikolay Patrushev said on Wednesday.
"While liberating the people of Ukraine from Neo-Nazism, Russia is today fighting not only against nationalist formations and the Ukrainian military. Actually, the NATO alliance is fighting against us and its members are providing the Kiev regime with heavy weapons, ammunition and reconnaissance data and training military specialists," the security chief said.
NATO member states "are involved in planning military operations and are blackmailing with the use of weapons of mass destruction," Patrushev pointed out.
"These are not empty threats. The United States and its allies have long been implementing their plans to create biological weapons in laboratories set up across the world, in particular, near Russian borders. Some laboratories, as we know, were located in Ukraine and were used to create especially dangerous pathogens," the security chief explained.
"Therefore, implementing the tasks of the denazification and demilitarization of Ukraine is an imperative for neutralizing the threats to the security of our people and people on liberated territories and for protecting the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the Russian Federation," Patrushev emphasized.
