"We know what security issues are. This is why we are creating armed forces, calling on our Western partners to engage in talks on ways to make the world a safer and a more stable place, prevent conflicts and resolve issues peacefully," stated the Spokeswoman.
"How many proposals did we send to our Western partners through the North Atlantic Alliance, and how many answers did we get? We sent a lot of proposals and did not get a single answer, " noted Zakharova.
She added that the accusations blaming Russia for deploying troops on the border with Ukraine are nothing but manipulation of the information. Zakharova suggested that instead of asking questions about Russian troops' positions, Western media should focus its attention on NATO's troops stationed in Ukraine and how many arms had been provided to the country in the previous years.
