New commander of NATO forces in Europe stated about threat of "resurgent Russia"
"Russia striving to project itself as a world power", - Scaparrotti
In his words, NATO is facing a "resurgent Russia striving to project itself as a world power". He noted also that among other concerns for the Alliance there are terrorism and the refugee crisis.
"To address these challenges, we must continue to maintain and enhance our levels of readiness and our agility in the spirit of being able to fight tonight if deterrence fails," – said Scaparrotti.
The Kremlin has already reacted to his statement. Russian presidential press secretary Dmitry Peskov said that Russia is not a danger to anyone, but in the case of a threat to its national interests will respond accordingly.
