Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov stressed that Poland itself is not a threat to Russia, but its willingness to provide its territory for the deployment of foreign forces is dangerous.
"Poland itself is hardly a threat to Russia, but being a country willing to provide land for the military infrastructure of third countries or an organization like NATO, this poses a threat to us," Peskov said in an interview with the First Russian Channel.
He pointed out that Moscow has always been warning of the danger of NATO's advance toward the Russian border.
He said: "You know Russia's stance towards the danger of NATO infrastructure crawling towards our borders. This is disturbing for us and prompts us to take the necessary measures to ensure the security of our country."
On Friday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said that NATO's activity in the Baltic region and Poland "bears an explicit provocative nature."
