RUSSIA warned against continued Nato aggression on Saturday as the alliance moved troops to the border, claiming that the actions are a necessary deterrence.
Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu was responding to a statement by his German counterpart Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer, who last week appeared to suggest that Nato was prepared to use nuclear weapons to contain Russia.
“Amid the calls for military deterrence of Russia, Nato is consistently pulling its forces to our borders,” he said.
“The German defence minister must well know how such moves in the past ended for Germany and Europe.
“There can be only shared security in Europe, without infringements on Russia’s interests. But it is Nato that is unprepared for an equitable dialogue on this issue,” Mr Shoigu added.
Relations between Russia and Nato have continued to deteriorate, with Moscow cutting ties with the 30-member bloc earlier this month after it was accused of spying.
Last week Nato announced a so-called “master plan to deal with the Russian threat,” which includes increased military support for its neighbouring countries.
Some 28,000 troops took part in recent US-led war games exercises stretching from the Baltic to the Black Sea.
Moscow insists that neither the US nor Nato are serious about mending the relationship.
