NATO: Time to Treat Russia as an Adversary


Alexander Vershbow, the deputy secretary-general of NATO, said on Thursday that it was time to start treating Russia as an enemy.

"Clearly the Russians have declared NATO as an adversary, so we have to begin to view Russia no longer as a partner but as more of an adversary than a partner," he told reporters, adding that Russia's behavior in Ukraine have fundamentally changed the NATO-Russia relationship.
