NATO ‘Atavism of Cold War Times’, Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov Says


NATO is an atavism of the Cold War mentality and Russia doesn’t believe that what NATO is doing by trying to expand, is the way to resolve the problems of today, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told Larry King in an interview.

“NATO is a reality, it’s an atavism of the Cold War times,” Lavrov said on Friday when asked by RT host Larry King to elaborate on his views of NATO. “We don’t believe in what NATO is doing by trying to expand further and further, closer to Russia’s borders, swallowing countries, which frankly, does not add to the alliance’s security. We do not believe this is the way to resolve today’s problems.”

Lavrov noted that Russia and the United States today face common threats and enemies — “terrorism, climate change, organized crime and none of these is being effectively addressed by NATO expansion.”

Lavrov also stressed that Russia is not going to attack any country, but at the same time Moscow does not want to be left without defenses and is developing new weapons solely to protect its security. Read More
