He & nbsp; emphasized that & nbsp; & quot; the right of every country & nbsp; & mdash; choose membership. ” “ Russia's neighbors, whose territorial integrity has been violated, are under threat, '' & nbsp; & mdash; said & nbsp; he.
On December 17, the Russian Foreign Ministry published a draft of treaties with & nbsp; the United States and & nbsp; NATO on & nbsp; security guarantees.
