The creation of so-called “Military Schengen” Zone, proposed to fasten the transportation of NATO forces to the Russian borders has become a new priority for NATO. This was stated by Deputy Defense Minister Colonel-General Alexander Fomin.

Russia is attempting a change in the world order, splitting the NATO, and weakening the US clout in order to bully its neighbours and expand its influence around the world. These statements were made recently by the commander-in-chief of NATO in Europe, General Curtis Scaparrotti.

“Russia is working hard to change the world order, divide NATO and undermine US leadership in order to defend its regime. Russia aspired to maintain dominance over its neighbours, and to achieve greater control around the world.” To achieve these goals, the Kremlin is ruthlessly using its defence power, said the NATO commander.
