Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of Russia Alexander Grushko said that Moscow expects a clear answer from the outside NATO on proposals for security guarantees. He stated this following a meeting of the NATO-Russia Council (RNC), reports RIA News…
According to him, Russia hopes that the alliance countries will either present their views on how to follow the path of implementing the proposals put forward by Moscow, or explain why they are unacceptable. The diplomat also stressed that the Russian proposals were presented in writing, and they are absolutely clear.
At the same time, Grushko said that, given the severity of the security situation that has developed today, the meeting of the RF-NATO Council is absolutely in demand. He also added that the past conversation largely made it clear to the parties who stands where and what challenge they have to deal with.
Formerly deputy head Ministry of Foreign Affairs statedthat the main condition for the de-escalation of the conflict around Donbass is the termination of military assistance to Ukraine from NATO and forcing it to comply with the Minsk agreements. According to the diplomat, first of all, we are talking about a ban on the supply of weapons for Kiev and the presence in the republic of foreign military instructors, inspectors and military units. He called this requirement directly stipulated by the Minsk agreements.
