MOSCOW (Sputnik) — On July 8-9, NATO will hold a Summit in Warsaw, Poland to discuss boosting the alliance’s military presence in Eastern Europe among other topics.
"The situation in Europe is crucial these days. NATO continues to enlarge, signing off troops to its eastern flanks, NATO plans to admit more countries to the alliance and this is a move in a wrong direction. Countries like Ukraine, Finland, Sweden are going to participate at the summit and are already included in the alliance's enlargement strategy and exercises near the Russian border," Kristine Karch, a co-chair of the International network 'No to War — No to NATO', said.
The "No to NATO" website says that on July 9 activists plan to take their protest to the streets of Warsaw to express opposition to the NATO summit. The organizers are expecting Saturday’s march to be a major demonstration.
