Grushko: the Idea of NATO on confidence-building measures contrary to the policy of containment of Russia
NATO's policy of "containment" of Russia does not fit with the proposals of the Commonwealth on new confidence-building measures with Moscow, said Russian permanent Representative to NATO Alexander Grushko.
He said that the Secretary General of NATO Jens Stoltenberg before, "announced the desire of the Commonwealth to make some proposals for confidence building measures on the "Vienna area" at the time of the OSCE Forum on cooperation in security ", RIA " Novosti ".
"for example, He said low thresholds for notifications and observations of the exercises. Mentioned and our practice of unannounced inspections, which allowed the Vienna document and carried out with observance of all necessary measures of transparency after these events begin to be implemented " on the ground ", ? said Grushko. The envoy believes that " we need to wait and see which package has the ability to be shown on the Forum, and then to explain it "." however, this NATO initiative looks strange on the background of those military preparations, carried out by the Alliance on the " Eastern flank ". It is clear that If the policy of NATO will not change Unless the rate for the approximation of the military infrastructure to our borders, will be made additional attempts to increase its military presence by the forward placement of heavy equipment, a more active rotation of military power, it would contradict the very idea of confidence-building measures that are declared in the Alliance. They do not tally with these military preparations aimed, as currently officially reported, "containment" of Russia", - has told the Envoy. According to his statement, from the history of observations on weapons you know, "these measures are intended not to replace but to Supplement political efforts to shift from schemes of security based on the balance of threats and controvert, to ensure the security on the other" principles." The consensus in favor of developing a monitoring regime over conventional armaments in the European Union and confidence and security building measures (CSBMs) began to take shape when it became clear that confrontation, the arms build-up in excess of reasonable limits are a danger to the security of Europe. Then confidence-building measures and was in demand as it was possible to consolidate these political understandings and translate them into the language restrictions, exchange of information, observations, visits and so forth, " ? the Envoy said. However, He said that " at the moment NATO is conducting a course that provides an opportunity to consider the proposed confidence-building measures as appropriate for their intended use "." There is an impression that the Alliance, on the one hand, wishes to draw them to the forefront, most importantly, in practice military power of the Russian Federation, and, return, through our acceptance of these measures, really, to certify, to legalize the military preparations, which He makes at our boundaries, undermining the fundamental provisions of the Founding act Russia ? NATO ", - has said Grushko. The envoy said that " the development of CSBMs, this contradiction is not addressed "." Need from the policy and military planning, focused on confrontation. In addition, a deep modernization of the Vienna document is not possible without reliance on "hard" limit ? monitoring measures on arms. If NATO countries will formulate appropriate proposals, we will be ready to study them ", - has declared the Ambassador. According to his statement, also "can't do without a serious conversation about "real weight" of instruments IHOP "." why the objective results of the inspection do not affect the content of political statements? There was so much noise around the so-called concentration of Russian troops near the Ukrainian border, and numerous inspections and flights in the open skies Treaty not recorded, " ? said Grushko. In the Ministry of foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation at the end of November revealed that NATO has again embarked on a "containment" of Russia and correcting the balance of power in the European Union in their favor.
