NATO could lose the permanent Russian representative
The Ministry of foreign Affairs of Russia considers the possibility to lower the level of representation of Russia to NATO. This is due to the fact that the Alliance is not configured on a constructive dialogue with Moscow, and any conversation degenerated into accusations against the Russian side.
— There is the option to leave in Brussels chargé d’affaires after Alexander Grushko (acting permanent representative of Russia to NATO) will return to Moscow, — have informed “news” a senior source in the foreign Ministry.
At the same time Moscow does not hurry with this decision and hopes to have a constructive discussion with NATO at the upcoming meeting on July 13.
First Deputy Chairman of the Federation Council Committee on international Affairs Vladimir dzhabarov told “Izvestia” that possible actions from Moscow is justified, given the Alliance’s cooperation with Russia. Dzhabarov hopes that a lot will depend on relations between Russia and the United States.
Of course, now we have a NATO relationship is not very bright. This is not the fault of Russia, as we have always been ready to cooperate. And NATO unilaterally it rolled. I hope that we will be able to restore the relationship at an acceptable level.Vladimir Geobarometry Deputy Chairman of the Federation Council Committee on international Affairs
