Moscow [Russia], October 22 (ANI/Sputnik): NATO seeks to turn the Black Sea region into the confrontation zone, and this is very dangerous, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Alexander Grushko said on Friday.
"Now they have taken up the Black Sea region. We are witnessing increased activity on the territory of Bulgaria and Romania and are leading the way towards turning the black sea into an arena of military rivalry, as the Baltic Sea is already turned into the confrontation zone," Grushko told the Russia 24 broadcaster, adding that "this is an extremely dangerous path that may lead to the risks of military incidents."The official added that Russia was ready to cooperate with NATO on further "de-escalation" in the Baltic region but the alliance refused.
