Moscow is seeking guarantees from the US over NATO expansion

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Wednesday that the US and Russia have agreed to begin talks on the security guarantees Moscow is seeking in January.

Russia submitted security proposals to the US last week amid simmering tensions surrounding Ukraine. Moscow wants guarantees that NATO won’t absorb Ukraine or expand further eastward and is looking for mutual agreements on the deployment of military assets in the region and the deployment of nuclear weapons.

“We don’t want a war,” Lavrov said. “We don’t want to take the path of confrontation. But we will firmly ensure our security using the means we consider necessary.”
