Xinhua News Agency, Moscow, July 1 (Reporter Zhao Bing) Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Glushko said on the 1st that NATO’s announcement that Russia is the biggest threat is a comprehensive confrontation against Russia.
According to the TASS news agency, Glushko said in a speech at the Russian think tank “Valdai” International Debate Club on the 1st that NATO regards Russia as the biggest threat. This is a very important change. Aim to contain Russia.
Glushko said the results of the NATO Madrid summit showed that NATO has returned to the Cold War-era military security model. The accession of Finland and Sweden to NATO will lead to the deterioration of the military situation in the Baltic region, which will be “one of the most tragic events” in the development of European security. If Finland and Sweden join NATO, Russia will take appropriate measures to ensure security.
On June 29, leaders of NATO member states approved the “NATO Strategic Concept 2022” at a summit in Madrid, calling Russia the “biggest and immediate threat” to NATO. Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Ryabkov condemned NATO’s irresponsible and undermined European security architecture on the same day, saying that NATO’s decision at the Madrid summit will not affect Russia’s policy.
