Head of the British Air Force: Russia's aviation and navy threaten the UK and NATO
Combat aviation and the fleet of Russia threaten the UK and NATO, said the head of the British Air Force, Air Chief Marshal Michael Wigston. He is quoted as saying by the Telegraph.
Calling Russian aviation and navy a threat, the general calls for the alliance to focus on them.
Earlier in the Russian Federation, the confrontational attitude of NATO, as well as the threat from the expansion of the bloc, were repeatedly noted. The Russian Foreign Ministry noted the unwillingness of the alliance to maintain dialogue and unprecedented activity near the borders of Russia under the pretext of "deterring Russian aggression."
In September, President Vladimir Putin, in an address to the Russians, said that the West had crossed every line in its anti-Russian policy, as well as constant threats against Russia. According to him, nuclear blackmail was used by the West.
