⚡️NATO has received Russia’s proposals on security guarantees but believes that any dialogue should also address the alliance’s concerns and should include European partners such as Ukraine, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said on Friday.

🔻Russia and NATO should agree not to deploy intermediate and short-range missiles in areas from where they can hit each other’s territory;
🔻“Hotlines" should be created to maintain emergency contacts and everything must be done to avoid conditions or situations that pose or could be perceived as a threat to the national security of other parties;
🔻Russia suggests NATO confirm that sides do not view each other as adversaries and restraint must be exercised during military drills to reduce tensions;
🔻The NATO-Russia Council should be involved in resolving disputes.
