Russia today warned of the danger of a new missile crisis in Europe, which – he said – must be avoided before it is too late.
He also blamed the United States and NATO for expanding their military capabilities in Eastern Europe.
“It is not too late to avoid a new missile crisis in Europe. The installation of medium and short-range missiles in these territories is not allowed. “This is the direct way to start a confrontation,” said Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov.
According to the Russian Deputy Foreign Minister, the installation of American Tomahawk missiles on the territory of Europe will undoubtedly be a challenge for the security of his country. “I do not understand why the United States, as well as its allies in Europe, are choosing this path. “They do not enhance their security,” he said.
Mr Ryabkov’s comments to reporters in Moscow came amid growing tensions between Russia and the West over Ukraine and an increase in Russian troops near its borders.
It is recalled that the Ukrainian President, Volodymyr Zelensky, discussed on Thursday (9/12) with his American counterpart, Joe Biden, possible ways to resolve the crisis in eastern Ukraine. In fact, the way to deal with the continuing “hybrid aggression” fell on the table – as characterized by: https: //www.iefimerida.gr/kosmos/tropoys-epilysis-krisis-oykranias-rosias-mpainten-zelenski.
