Shoigu: "NATO is pulling forces to borders with Russia"

“Against the backdrop of calls for military containment of Russia, NATO is consistently pulling forces to our borders," said Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu in his response to the words of the head of the German defense department Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer, Qazet.az reports citing TASS.

"The German Defense Minister must know well how this ended for Germany and Europe,” Shoigu said.

He stressed that “security in Europe can only be general, without infringing on Russia’s interests.”

“But NATO is not ready for an equal dialogue on this issue today. Moreover, the implementation of NATO’s” containment “plan in Afghanistan ended in a catastrophe, which is now being dealt with by the whole world,” Shoigu added.
