Russia: NATO Military Blocks are Not Useful

Photo: AFP – Russia calls NATO a completely useless military bloc. The strong comments came after NATO blamed Russia for provocations near the border of the defense bloc.

Reported from Sputnik, Thursday (7/12/2018), it was delivered by the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs in a press statement.

In the statement also looks a bit of a joke. The ministry also denied the NATO statement and said they were preparing to watch the 2018 World Cup.

“While the useless NATO military bloc accused us of provocative activities and grinding teeth in Brussels, we are getting ready to watch the 2018 World Cup,” the ministry said.

Allied countries and the NATO government issued a declaration condemning Russia for its military posture.

They also condemned the spread of modren missiles in the eccentric Baltic Kaliningrad and military buildup in the Crimea.

“Russia’s aggressive actions, including the threat and use of force to achieve political goals, challenge the Alliance and undermine the Euro-Atlantic security and the rule-based international order,” the declaration said.

NATO also noted that the bloc remains open for dialogue with Moscow.
