Russia is watching the changes within NATO “very closely,” as the alliance's leaders gather in London this week, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said in a conference call with reporters Tuesday.
“This alliance is a product of the era of confrontation and Cold War, and Russia never wanted for this era to come back," said Peskov.
"But the alliance that was created and tailored for the ideology confrontation, cannot really bring anything else. So in this context we are watching very closely what’s happening within NATO.”
As for Macron's comments about NATO's "brain death," Peskov said: "Whether some of its body parts are dead, that’s not really our issue.”
