Moscow River with NATO

Russia suspends the activities of its post procurement under NATO, the Russian Foreign Ministry reported Sergey Lavrov.

The Russian minister added that the Russian Federation also suspends the work of the NATO Communication Military Mission in Moscow and the activities of the NATO Information Bureau in Russia, Interfax reports.

On October 6, NATO decided to reduce the size of the Mission of the Russian Federation in the Alliance twice and deprive accreditation of eight diplomats in response to the intended hostile activities of Russia. The Secretary General of the Alliance Jens Stoltenberg explained that this decision was not associated with some specific affairs. “We recalled accreditation in eight members of the Russian Mission with NATO, who were working under the cover by employees of the intelligence service,” he said.
