Moscow Believes US Could Resort to Violation of Russia-NATO Founding Act, Diplomat Says

Russia is closely following the US plans to move part of its troops from Germany to Poland, and will implement all the needed measures to ensure its national security, as the US may violate the 1997 Russia-NATO Founding Act on Mutual Relations, Cooperation and Security, Deputy Foreign Minister Alexander Grushko said on Thursday.

"Of course, we are attentively following the announcements that are made in Washington regarding the possible relocation of some of the US troops from Germany to Poland," Grushko said, stressing Russia's readiness to "implement all the necessary measures for ensuring the legitimate interests of its defensive capacity and security."

According to the diplomat, Russia focuses on the matter in the context of consequences for the regional security — taking into consideration its own interests and interests of allies, chiefly Belarus — and also in the context of the implementation of the Russia-NATO Founding Act, which envisions NATO's obligation "to abstain from additional deployments of significant combative forces."
