Moscow warns NATO of military action

Moscow warns the US-led NATO to take military action against them if the alliance fails to find a political solution to Moscow's concerns about Ukraine.
At the same time, Russia called on the United States to provide security around Ukraine.
Russia's foreign minister called on the NATO alliance to suspend all military activity in Eastern Europe and Ukraine last week.
US National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan said on Friday he was ready to discuss the issue with Moscow.
Russia's Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said on Monday that Moscow had not yet received a positive response from the United States to its security concerns. If NATO avoids the matter, Russia will take action against them.
The US and NATO have deployed large numbers of troops and weapons in the border countries of Russia in recent years under the pretext that Moscow poses a threat to the West. In addition, the Ukrainian government has deployed large quantity of weapons along the Russian border under the pretext of suppressing the opposition in the eastern part of the country's Russian border.
Russia has repeatedly said that the deployment of troops and weapons on the Ukrainian border is normal and is a matter entirely internal to Russia. But the United States and its allies claim that Russia actually wants to invade Ukraine. That is why Western countries are trying to portray the Russia-Ukraine border as 'extremely tense.
