Russia warns against military buildup by NATO

By Reuters in Moscow ( China Daily ) Updated: 2014-06-10 07:30:29

Russia would consider any further expansion of NATO forces near its borders a "demonstration of hostile intentions" and would take political and military measures to ensure its own security, a senior diplomat was quoted as saying on Monday.

The comments come amid a deep crisis between Russia and the West over Ukraine and days after US President Barack Obama offered increased military support for Eastern European NATO members to ease their concerns over Moscow.

"We cannot see such a buildup of the alliance's military power near the border with Russia as anything else but a demonstration of hostile intentions," Deputy Foreign Minister Vladimir Titov told Interfax in an interview.
