MOSCOW (Sputnik) — NATO should reassure Moscow that the alliance has no "aggressive ambitions" toward Russia, Deputy Supreme Allied Commander Europe Adrian Bradshaw said in an interview released on Saturday.

"For Russia it is a question of reassuring them that NATO is an entirely defensive alliance. That we have no aggressive ambitions towards Russia, but we are absolutely implacable in our adherence to the principle of collective defense," Adrian Bradshaw said in an interview to Defense News broadcaster.

He added that NATO would react very seriously to any challenge to the alliance's collective security.
