Alexander Grushko, Permanent Representative of Russia to NATO, says that Russia will take measures to provide national security as NATO is reinforcing its allies, RIA Novosti reports.
“We should find out in what way will NATO plans affect Russia’s security and the security of its allies. Anyway, we will take all measures to prevent any threat to our security and stability,” Grushko told Russian journalists.
Anders Fogh Rasmussen, Secretary General of NATO, said on Wednesday that NATO allies would intensify air patrolling of the Baltic region, send ships to the Baltic and the Mediterranean Seas and deploy more military personnel. These measures are to be taken in the nearest future.
