American media report that the accession of Montenegro to NATO has incurred the wrath of Russia. It is noted that this situation prevents the West to negotiate with Moscow about stopping the incident in Syria.
Montenegro's accession to NATO has caused fury and threats from the Russian side, reports The New York Times. It is noted that this situation was exacerbated by the "cold war" between Moscow and the West.
As noted by the newspaper, the invitation "tiny Montenegro" to join NATO was sent in a bad time when the West wants to convince the Russian Federation to combine forces to combat terrorist group "Islamic state" and resolving military conflict in Syria.
The newspaper quotes words of the press Secretary Dmitry Peskov that the expansion of NATO to the East will cause the response of Moscow. Besides all this, it is emphasized that the annexation of Crimea as well as allegations of domestic aircraft contributed to the gradual growth of the financial and military tensions between Russia and NATO.
Recall, December 2, the office of the Alliance invited Montenegro to start negotiations on joining the organization. NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg has called this a historic decision. In addition, the Russian foreign Ministry regarded this move as confrontational and announced that it would destabilize the international security system.
