Pravda.ru with the headline: NATO discussed the “inevitable military conflict” with Russia
American diplomat and, since 2016, NATO Deputy Secretary General, Rose Gottemoeller, said that the alliance would like to avoid a military conflict with Russia, but is forced to react to Moscow’s actions in the international arena.
“Let me emphasize: we do not want a conflict with Russia, we categorically would not wish to be in a situation where the clash would be inevitable, and that’s what we are guided by when making decisions,” Izvestia quotes Gottemoeller.
According to the deputy, NATO has no reason not to trust the UK’s conclusions that Russia is allegedly involved in the poisoning of former GRU employee Sergei Skripal and his daughter.
“This laboratory’s conclusions are far from being the only information on the basis of which the British authorities came to their conclusions, they were guided by other sources of information, and there is no reason for NATO members not to trust the arguments of the United Kingdom,” Gotemuller said.
Earlier, “Pravda.Ru” reported that the secret service of MI6 discussed with the CIA the possibility of hiding in the territory of the United States Sergei Skripal and his daughter Julia. The reason for the move would be to protect them from new attacks.**
*Your translator cannot leave this alone. It’s a song, “We don’t want war, but by jingo!” The song specifically referred to Russia. Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose. We didn’t want to fight, but by jingo now we do
**”The reason for the move”? A child could see it!
