“They have no proof,” Meshkov told RIA Novosti, adding, “Such claims are made not by unbridled politicians, but by the heads of the organization, which a priori, should make clear reliable statements, rather than be a propaganda mouthpiece.”
Meshkov said that NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg did not raise this issue during recent talks with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov in Munich.
“To raise this question, one has to have some specific data. During all the past year, NATO presented us with no specific information,” he said.
In April, NATO ended all practical cooperation with Russia over Ukraine, only maintaining contacts at ambassadorial and higher levels.
