NATO summit confirms desire to prolong conflict, says Russia

The extraordinary summit of the NATO has confirmed “the alliance’s desire to contain Russia and prolong the military conflict in Ukraine”, the Russian Foreign Ministry said.

“The decision announced at the summit to continue providing political and practical support to the Kiev regime confirms the alliance"s interest in continuing hostilities.

NATO members have demonstrated their loyalty to Washington by vowing to follow its orders aimed at ultimately containing Russia. Washington once again disciplined its allies by pressuring sovereign countries and further erasing Europe’s strategic autonomy.

They silently watched the US destroy the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty, stood aside when Washington withdrew from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty, allowed the Americans to withdraw from the Treaty on Open Skies. NATO members have been slowly destroying the European security system”, - the Ministry’s spokesperson Maria Zakharova said.
