Poland Sets Own Conditions for NATO Talks With Russia
MOSCOW (Sputnik) — NATO has been increasing its military presence in Eastern Europe and the Black Sea since the outbreak of the conflict in southeastern Ukraine in April 2014.

Russia has repeatedly expressed concerns over NATO's military buildup along its western borders, warning that the alliance's expansion undermines regional and global security.

"NATO is today attempting to move its confrontational schemes to the Black Sea. Recently, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that the Black Sea cannot be transformed into a 'Russian lake.' But NATO is well aware that the Black Sea will never become a 'NATO lake' and we will take all necessary steps to neutralize possible threats and attempts to pressure Russia militarily from the south," Alexander Grushko told Rossiyskaya Gazeta newspaper.
