Russia “pays close attention to bringing NATO’s military infrastructure closer to its borders”.

The Kremlin has officially responded to the recognition of Ukraine by the North Atlantic Alliance on June 12 as a member of NATO‘s Enhanced Capabilities Program.

Dmytro Pieskov, a spokesman for the Russian president, told reporters that Russia was “attentive to bringing NATO’s military infrastructure closer to its borders”.

“We have to take the necessary steps to ensure our own safety in this regard. And, of course, given the nature of NATO and, in fact, the original goals for which NATO was created as a mechanism of confrontation, of course, we always pay close attention to the processes when NATO, so to speak, absorbs more and more countries in different formats,” – said in the Kremlin.

Pieskov also adds that Ukraine’s new status in NATO “does not contribute to strengthening security and stability in Europe”.
