But we will firmly ensure our security using the means we consider necessary.”.
Ukraine's security chief said Wednesday that the country now faces more than 250,000 troops amassed in western Russia.
In Tuesday's speech before top military brass, Putin warned that Russia will have to take “adequate military-technical measures” if the West continues its aggressive course “on the threshold of our home.”.
“And that also means that, if proposals are made that are not our basis for negotiations, we must speak to each other.”.
She stressed the importance of returning to four-way talks between Germany, France, Russia and Ukraine, and again expressed hopes of reviving talks in the NATO-Russia Council to prevent further escalation.
