No One In Russia Plans To Attack NATO – US Envoy To Alliance

RT – December 19, 2016: Russia has no plans to attack the North Atlantic Alliance, according to US Permanent Representative to NATO Douglas Lute.

In response to a question by the news anchor on whether Russia is expected to try and annex its Russian-speaking Western neighbors, just as it acted – in the eyes of the West – with Crimea and Ukraine, Lute told ABC broadcaster he does not “believe that anyone in Russia today intends to attack NATO.” He added, however, that NATO is responsible for “reassuring” its Eastern European allies in this regard.

“But that doesn’t mean that we don’t have a responsibility to reassure allies like Estonia, who are frontline allies, that is they have a land border with Russia, or allies who are potentially susceptible to cyberattack or misinformation campaigns and so forth,” he said.
