Russia takes note of NATO’s malicious plans and EU’s threats

The North Atlantic Alliance (NATO) has malicious plans against Russia, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said, RIA Novosti reports.
Earlier on June 1, German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas called on the alliance to build up “political muscles.” It was also reported that Maas supported the reform of NATO funding proposed by NATO secretary general Jens Stoltenberg and advocated dialogue with Russia. At the same time, Maas stressed that “the ball is on the side of Moscow.”
On May 31, the NATO Secretary General said that the alliance wanted to improve relations with Russia. He noted that even if relations do not improve, Moscow and NATO should maintain a dialogue, which becomes even more important against the backdrop of difficult interaction between the parties.
