Ex-US Admiral Urges Washington to ‘Beware the Bear’ Amid Collapse of Russia-NATO Ties

Relations between Russia and NATO hit new post-Cold War lows this month, culminating in the suspension of the bloc’s mission in Moscow. On Monday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that relations couldn’t even be described as ‘catastrophic’, “because to be catastrophic you need to have something. We don’t have any relations with NATO.”

James Stavridis, a retired US admiral and former Supreme Allied Commander of NATO, has urged the alliance not to take Russia out of its sights as the Western alliance continues its pivot to focusing on China, adding that the bloc can still mend ties with Moscow, if certain “conditions” are met.

In an op-ed for Bloomberg, Stavridis commented on Russia’s move this month to suspend its mission to NATO and order the closure of the bloc’s Moscow office in response to the expulsion of eight Russian diplomats from the alliance’s Brussels headquarters.
