Russian Parliament Issues Warning on NATO Military Buildup

June 24, 2016 (EIRNS)—The Russian State Duma, the lower house of Russia’s parliament, passed a motion, yesterday, warning NATO that its reinforcements in Eastern Europe risk sparking a new Cold War and will prompt Moscow and her allies to view the region as a target for retaliation, reported Newsweek, yesterday, citing Tass. Members of parliament called plans for further NATO expansion

"a dangerous trend, seemingly intended not for defense, but for waging a new Cold War."

"In a scenario when the NATO leadership is trying to justify the reason for its existence by concocting a confrontation with Russia, members of the State Duma consider it necessary to unite efforts with colleagues abroad to overcome dangerous tendencies, capable of causing a political and armed confrontation,"

the statement reads.
