Russia’s Defense Ministry has been taking military-technical measures in connection with the NATO military build-up near Russia's western borders, Russian Deputy Defense Minister Anatoly Antonov said in interview to the RT television channel on Wednesday.
"The military build-up is taking place along the perimeter of the western borders of the Russian Federation. Such dangerous plans are implemented in the missile defense sphere. The NATO countries’ defense spending is increasing. I mean that we see all this, note this and take the appropriate military-technical measures. However, I would like to emphasize - we are against an arms race, no matter who imposes it on us," Antonov said.
