Normal Diplomatic Discussions With NATO Impossible in Light of Bloc's Moves, Russia Says

On Monday, Russia suspended the operation of NATO's information office in Moscow, and its own permanent mission to the alliance, over the bloc's move to revoke the accreditation of employees of the Russian mission to NATO. From now on, the alliance is instructed to turn to Russia's ambassador to Belgium if it has "any urgent matters" to discuss.

Normal diplomatic relations with NATO are impossible amid the hostile measures taken by the alliance against Russia, Deputy Foreign Minister Alexander Grushko has said.
Speaking at a briefing Friday, Grushko suggested that at this moment, there are no longer any positive moments in relations between Russia and the alliance to speak of.

The diplomat pointed to NATO's growing activity on Russia's borders, including the deployment of a strategic component, which he said "creates new military realities." Grushko suggested that the alliance is quickly "sliding into Cold War schemes," with such actions "directly influencing relations with Russia."
