With the appearance of elements of the US’ “missile defense system” on its territory, Romania represents a clear threat to Russia’s security, the director of the the Russian foreign ministry’s Fourth European Department, Alexander Botsan-Kharchenko, says.
“Regarding Romania’s position and the position of the leadership of Romania which has turned the country into an outpost, this is a clear threat for us. The Romanian side has been informed of this, including publicly,” Botsan-Kharchenko said in an interview.
According to the diplomat’s words, the decision to host US missiles is first and foremost directed against Russia. Botsan-Kharchenko asserted that “an openly anti-Russian, even Russophobic line inspired by sanctions and avidly anti-Russian rhetoric” has been observed from Bucharest.
