Ukraine, Medvedev: “Russia is ready for a possible NATO aggression”

Russia must be ready for possible aggressive actions by the Nat o. The vice-president of the Security Council of the Russian Federation Dmitry Medvedev said at a meeting of the Presidium of the Council for science and education, according to reports from TASS. “We are mainly talking about an attempt to expand NATO’s presence near our borders,” the former Russian president said. “And this is no longer a figure of speech today, this is not a standard set of threats. We have to be prepared for those aggressive actions that could happen.” Therefore, Medvedev continued, it is important to build a system that allows the country to be supplied with the most modern weapons. “And this requires reliable, high-tech and powerful equipment, both military and dual-use,” he said, stressing the need to use innovative developments and advanced research to “counter the most serious threats” facing Russia.
