Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov called the words of NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg regarding Russian proposals for security guarantees in Europe inadequate. The words of the diplomat are transmitted by RIA Novosti.
“Mr. Stoltenberg, the Secretary General of the North Atlantic Alliance, constantly makes some not very adequate statements,” the Foreign Minister stressed.
Earlier, Stoltenberg stressed that a compromise between Russia and NATO on the right of Ukraine to “choose its own path” and apply for membership in the alliance is impossible. He again accused the Russian side of pulling the armed forces to the Ukrainian border.
