NATO believes aggressive Russia and terrorism to be two main threats now and in subsequent years.
Deputy Secretary General of NATO Alexander Vershbow said this at the meeting with Romanian diplomats in Bucharest on Tuesday, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.
He recalled that Russia had illegally annexed Crimea in 2014 and had applied its armed forces on the territory of the sovereign territory of another country for the first time since World War II in Europe.
The Deputy Secretary General of NATO said that the Russian Federation was trying to intimidate the NATO with its aggressive actions in eastern Ukraine and towards other neighbors.
"As long as Russia continues its aggression against Ukraine and tries to intimidate NATO allies and partners, we will make every effort to maintain deterrence and security," the Deputy Secretary General of NATO said.
