“Trump made a lot of these in General attention-grabbing statements, in the trip and in the middle East, and European countries. On the part of NATO was a dramatic statement against the allies, in my opinion, these statements of priority involved. As to the mention of Russia, maybe it is possible to consider including in the plan boosts allies to ensure that they fulfil their obligations to make the relevant amounts in the NATO budget”, — said Ushakov told reporters.
He noted that the situation with the so-called “Russiangate” in Washington was accurately described by the Russian President Vladimir Putin as “political schizophrenia”.
“It now describes the manners that prevail, unfortunately, the political elite of Washington. Of course, this causes frustration, regret, confusion,” — said Ushakov.
Assistant to the President of the Russian Federation noted that “the activity of NATO against the Russian Federation, North-Eastern or North-Western flank, of course, causes concern.” “Nothing good about it. But we consider this statement in the context of what they say now in America regarding the so-called “Russian dossier”, he added.
