“The Russian side has never strayed from dialogue. Obviously we have always been supporters of dialogue. We believe that this is the only actual method of solving problems and issues that are before us,” Peskov told journalists in regard to NATO’s initiative to hold a Russia-NATO meeting ahead of the NATO summit in July.
The accession of Montenegro into NATO, which is the expansion of the alliance to the east, raises the degree in tensions on the continent, Dmitry Peskov said.
NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organization) has been reinforcing its military presence in Europe, particularly in Eastern European states, since the outbreak of the Ukrainian crisis, citing Russia's alleged interference in the conflict as justification for the move.
Moscow has repeatedly denied the accusations, calling NATO's military buildup near Russia’s borders provocative.
