    According to the Russian Defense Ministry, the NATO-Russia Council meeting is scheduled for July 13, 2016.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — NATO-Russia Council at permanent representatives level is scheduled for July 13, 2016, Russian Defense Ministry press service said in a statement Saturday.

    "Currently, the issue of aviation safety over the Baltic Sea is on the agenda of the Russia-NATO Council at the level of Permanent Representatives, which is scheduled for July 13, 2016," the statement said.

    Since 2014, NATO has been building up its military presence in eastern European countries bordering Russia, using Moscow's alleged interference in Ukraine as a pretext for the move. Moscow has repeatedly denied the claims and warned the Alliance that its military buildup along Russia’s borders is provocative and could threaten regional and global stability.
