2010-02-09 17:46

NATO is still a threat to Russia, especially the former's constant expansion with the help of new participant countries, said Nikolai Patrushev, the Secretary of Security Council of Russia - RIA Novosti.


"We have grave doubts [that Russia will be more secure due to NATO expansion],"he said at today's press conference. "NATO represents a rather serious threat to us."

Since the termination of the Warsaw Pact, NATO has expanded from 12 members to 28, and included in the majority of Moscow's Cold War allies in Eastern Europe and some former Soviet republics.

The Security Council Secretary criticized NATO for its continued enlargement efforts, including its encouragement of Georgia's and Ukraine's aspirations to join the alliance.

He also accused NATO of arming and preparing Georgia for an assault on South Ossetia and Abkhazia, and said NATO countries continued armament supplies Tbilisi even despite Russia's protests.
