In Warsaw today opened the NATO summit. Declared that the Alliance changes the policy, returning to the times of the cold war. NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg prior to the summit said that Russia is an integral part of European security and the Alliance will continue to build a dialogue with our country.
But first and foremost the topic of the meeting will go on increasing military presence in the East, near the Russian border. Many people in Warsaw have already arrived. US President Barack Obama landed late at night. The bulk of the substantive work will start after lunch. The first half of the day is a ceremonial event, a solemn meeting, receptions, ceremony of joint photographing. Solution that allows you to talk about anti-Russian sentiments, the Alliance will be discussed tonight. We are talking about placing on a rotational basis international battalions along the Russian border, on the territory of Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia and Poland.
Today this decision will be made and formally recorded. Everything, without exception, NATO members support this decision. As for the statement about returning to the days of the cold war, such statements here may sound, and it is fundamentally important. Ahead of the summit Angela Merkel said that razgovarivat and negotiate without Russia is impossible. Speech at the summit will focus on collective security, of collective responsibility, the principle of "one for all and all for one". But these are only words and actions are diametrically opposed. Indeed, the very battalions which will be placed along the Russian border, the same, for example, a NATO battalion will be placed here.
Poland is just 280 km from Kaliningrad. According to an official statement, these battalions are "in the event of a Russian attack on Europe." Here in Warsaw talking about it seriously. For example, the Minister of defence of Poland yesterday scored an even sharper anti-Russian attacks. He said that Russia must and should now be stopped by force, because Russia is seriously going to attack Poland. Such sentiments prevail today in Warsaw. Ahead of the summit, the city was plastered with posters depicting as if the Russian President Putin and says "Attention, Russia". Russophobic sentiments do prevail here. One of the first sessions of the NATO summit will be called "Attention, Russia. Russian threat." Today you arrive here not only the leaders of NATO, but it is expected that here will arrive and the President Poroshenko. And as stated, the summit will focus on the implementation of the Minsk agreements. But this unusual wording. Will discuss, why Russia is not fulfilling the Minsk agreements. But it is clear that Russia is not subject to the Minsk agreements, and to execute them, if anyone should, it's just Poroshenko and official Kiev.
