    MOSCOW, April 8 (RIA Novosti). Russia's President Vladimir Putin will meet with NATO Secretary General Jaap de Hoop Scheffer, who has come on a two-day visit to Moscow, on Thursday. Mr Scheffer will also hold talks with Defence Minister Sergei Ivanov and Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.

    The new NATO head has come to Russia at a complicated time in bilateral relations. The Russian military and politicians are worried by the admission of the Baltic countries to NATO, the non-accession of the new bloc members to the CFE treaty, the hasty preparation of Lithuanian airfields for servicing NATO fighters.
