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.
