    The anti-Russian sentiment in the NATO member states is losing its momentum, Russia's Permanent Representative to NATO Alexander Grushko said Monday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — "As for the situation to date, there is no reason to doubt that NATO will continue its policy. But at the same time, it is clear that this anti-Russian sentiment is slowly losing its momentum, resources for Russophobia are being exhausted as well," Grushko told the Rossiya 24 broadcaster.

    Russia's envoy recalled NATO's attack on Yugoslavia, invasion in Iraq, as well as the bombing of Libya, in which the alliance had also participated.

    "All this led to the fact that the society in Western Europe got tired of all these large-scale operations, and NATO has not demonstrated its ability to counter new threats and risks — such as migration, terrorism, organized crime," Grushko said.

    NATO's activities in the post-Cold War period have failed to deliver any positive results in terms of ensuring security in Europe, the Russian envoy added.
