That’s according to Russian President Vladimir Putin, speaking in an interview aired on Sunday by national television.
This month, Moscow called on the US and NATO to sign treaties banning further expansion of the military bloc. Russian officials have repeatedly said they see US-dominated bases and other infrastructure, inside the former Warsaw Pact, as a threat.
Putin was asked what his government will do if the West rejects its demands.
“[Our response] can be very different,” the president said, hinting that Moscow may have multiple options in mind. “It will depend on the proposals from our military experts.”
