Let us remember that Vladimir Putin stated that Russia does not want a direct military confrontation with the United States, but is prepared for any development of events. He recalled that, at the initiative of the United States, a special mechanism was developed to prevent such conflicts. Both parties turn to him in case of any crisis situation.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, in turn, said that Moscow proposed to conclude agreements on mutual security guarantees in Europe, but the West arrogantly rejected the proposals. The minister also noted that NATO countries, led by the United States, are modernizing their offensive capabilities and are also trying to move armed confrontation to outer and information space.
