Russian Envoy Slams NATO Activities Near Russia’s Borders

Fact checked

Russia’s envoy to NATO has condemned recent moves and plans aimed at boosting the blocs military presence near Russian borders, saying they have no justification and have only served to increase tensions.

During an interview with Interfax,  Aleksandr Grushko said: “In essence, by its preparations along our borders NATO tries to impose on us a confrontational agenda that has nothing to do with real needs in the security sphere.”

He also said that Russia was closely following NATO’s preparations and updating their ability to respond to any potential threats.

RT reports:

The official added that NATO commanders were not only following existing plans for a build-up of forces, but were also continuing to develop new measures that would ensure the increase of their military presence on the south-eastern periphery of the alliance, including the Black Sea region that Russia sees as especially sensitive.

However, the envoy also noted that the Russian intelligence services and military were closely following these preparations and were updating their ability to respond to any potential threat accordingly.

“Of course, all of this is being analyzed in detail in regard to the protection of Russia’s justified interests in the security sphere and to choosing the optimum military-political reply to any changes of situation in the security sphere,” he said.

In mid-2016, Grushko ridiculed NATO’s preparations for repelling a Russian attack on Poland, saying that there were no plans whatsoever to launch an assault and calling the whole idea of readying for non-existent threats absurd and dangerous.

“Their policies dwell in surreal reality and the most dangerous thing is that now they start to implement these policies in the form of military planning and preparations on the territories adjacent to our borders,” the envoy said in a televised interview.

Grushko also said that the myth of an alleged Russian threat had been invented in order to justify NATO’s expansionist policies and to bring additional unity to the alliance and the Western political bloc in general.



  1. Yes war will come between Russia and Europe/Nato, that will finally wake
    up Europe against the US, as Europe will get hit bad and fly the white
    flag and form a truce(which will be temporary) , yet missiles will fall
    on the US soil, but not yet! This will happen by its ex allies for
    bringing this destruction on Europe, as Europe will be furious and angry
    against the Anglo world which it now sees as its folly for supporting them and wants revenge for having brought this carnage on EU/Europe.

    Madness, foolishness and stupidity knows no bounds; oh, did I mention insanity? And children shall rule over you!
    Isaiah 3:
    For, behold, the Lord, the Lord of hosts, doth take away from Jerusalem
    and from Judah the stay and the staff, the whole stay of bread, and the
    whole stay of water, 2 The mighty man, and the man of war, the judge,
    and the prophet, and the prudent, and the ancient, 3 The captain of
    fifty, and the honourable man, and the counsellor, and the cunning
    artificer, and the eloquent orator. 4 And I will give children to be
    their princes, and babes shall rule over them. 5 And the people shall be
    oppressed, every one by another, and every one by his neighbour: the
    child shall behave himself proudly against the ancient, and the base
    against the honourable.

    Note: Modern Israel is The Anglo/Saxon entity Britain/US=Ephraim/Manasseh. And have you noticed nothing as changed since the new president took office? But, has only intensified!

    God’s punishment and correction that is coming quickly will be very severe on the house of Israel and on all nations! You have only to believe the prophets of Ancient Israel who spoke by the Holy Spirit of GOD.
