    Russia and Belarus are concerned about the approach of the North Atlantic Alliance to their borders, said Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.

    According to him, NATO’s actions near the Belarusian and Russian borders lead to an escalation of tension. He noted that, first of all, we are talking about NATO’s military activity in the Baltic States and Poland.

    “We have a common opinion: such actions are openly confrontational and lead to a further escalation of tension,” the diplomat explained.

    Lavrov added that NATO activities could also lead to fragmentation of the European security and cooperation area.
