    Deputy head of Russia's Security Council Yevgeny Lukyanov said that NATO flights near Russia's borders increase the risk of dangerous situations.

    GROZNY (Sputnik) NATO flights near Russia's borders increase the risk of dangerous situations, deputy head of Russia's Security Council Yevgeny Lukyanov said Tuesday.

    "It is undoubtedly dangerous," Lukyanov said.

    "An American [aircraft] flew in our Far East. We all understand that everyone has their own tasks — national security, intelligence, provoking our air defense systems, it's all clear," he stated, underlining, however, that "the probability of contingencies increases."
