“On Friday, January 7, an extraordinary virtual meeting of NATO foreign ministers will take place. They will discuss the buildup of Russian military power in and around Ukraine, as well as broader issues of European security,” Lungescu wrote on her Twitter account.

Recently, the West has accused Russia of an allegedly impending invasion of Ukraine. The press loyal to Washington regularly cites unnamed sources and announces the plan and timing of the so-called attack. Moscow emphasized that such attacks are used as a pretext for deploying NATO weapons near the borders of the Russian Federation.

In connection with the intensified anti-Russian information campaign, which serves as an excuse for building up the alliance’s forces near the borders of the Russian Federation, the Russian Foreign Ministry published draft treaties with NATO and the United States on security guarantees. The documents, in particular, rule out the further expansion of the alliance to the east and the entry of the countries of the former USSR into it. The project also provides for the abandonment of any military activities of the alliance in Ukraine, Eastern Europe, Transcaucasia and Central Asia.

Russian President Vladimir Putin stressed that Moscow requires legally backed security guarantees, since NATO had already violated its promise of non-expansion eastward made in the 1990s five times.

Washington got acquainted with the Russian proposals. The talks on security will begin with consultations in Geneva between the Russian Federation and the United States on January 10, then continue at a meeting of the Russia-NATO Council on January 12 in Brussels and January 13 in Vienna at the OSCE.

Earlier, Sputnik radio reported how the German Foreign Ministry assessed the prospect of a meeting between Putin and Scholz.
