“We made it clear: if Moscow acts recklessly against us and our allies, we will take action, ” the head of the State Department said in an interview with Axios.
At the same time, Blinken noted that the United States would like to have more stable and predictable relations with Russia.
In March, NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg accused Russia of “aggressive behavior” and said it was necessary to restrain its actions. According to him, this requires strengthening the alliance’s defense and increasing funding. In response, the Foreign Ministry stressed that Moscow will take into account the mood of the alliance in its foreign policy and military planning. As noted in the Kremlin, Russia does not threaten anyone, but will not ignore actions that are potentially dangerous to its interests.
