Moscow's highest-ranking officials are demanding that NATO explain its recently announced plans to bolster military presence in Eastern Europe.
Secretary of State John F. Kerry struck a note of optimism on Syria Monday, claiming that he and Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov are discussing a partial ceasefire ahead of a major peace conference next week in Geneva.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov Tuesday angrily dismissed U.S. demands that his government hand over National Security Agency leaker Edward J. Snowden, missing since he skipped a flight to Cuba Monday and sought refuge at a Moscow airport.
Russia and China are calling for restraint on the Korean peninsula, where the North responded with midnight crisis meetings and more fist-shaking Friday to an overflight by U.S. nuclear-capable B-2 bombers.
"Contrary to those commitments, Russia now appears to be attempting to recreate a sphere of influence by seizing a part of Ukraine, maintaining large numbers of forces on its borders, and demanding, as Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov recently stated, that 'Ukraine cannot be part of any bloc,'" NATO said, adding that contrary to Moscow's claims, the alliance never pledged it would not expand into Eastern and Central Europe.
