NATO declared a "Long Rivalry with Russia"
NATO expects a long-term strategic rivalry with Russia, said Deputy Secretary General of NATO Alexander Vershbow, in The Washington Post.
"There is a very serious feeling that we are dealing with a long-term strategic rivalry with Russia. It will be a very dangerous attitude, work on which will have to carry on with great care in order to move forward, "- said Vershbow.
In Warsaw, July 8-9, will be held Summit of the Member States of NATO. Earlier, the alliance agreed to expand military operations in Europe, in particular, the deployment of four battalions on the eastern borders of the alliance on the basis of continuous rotation in Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia and Poland.
Moscow has repeatedly said it will not seek confrontation with the West, but Russian authorities are willing to make reciprocal steps to ensure the country's security.
