June 8, 2023

The Russian presidential press secretary, Dmitri Peskov, opposed and rejected expansion of NATO in a press conference on June 2.

It is Russia’s goal to stop NATO’s expansion and block its access to the frontier, he said, and added that the Russian government would attain the goal without fail.

Mentioning that the expansion of NATO is a “latent irritant” and the root cause of long-standing knotty problems, he ridiculed NATO, saying that if Washington “requests a song”, European countries “perform” it.
