Further expansion of NATO and affiliation of Georgia and the Ukraine will make Russia increase its military expenditures, Mikhail Kamynin, Spokesman of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russia says.
Russia has questions to NATO with regard to possible deployment of military bases in its new member states, in particular in Romania and Bulgaria, Mikhail Kamynin said.
"We hope that the alliance will observe its political and legal commitments in terms of military restraint when deciding on the deployment of the bases, and in particular the commitment not to deploy considerable combat forces in new member states," Kamynin said.
According to him, the urgent problem in Russian-NATO relations is ratification of the adopted agreement on conventional armament in the Europe, Prime News informed.
Mikhail Kamynin claimed that the agreement, which is in fact already in force, had stopped corresponding to present-day European reality.
