Air Force/Tech. Sgt. Matthew Plew In NATO have said that they don't threaten Russia" With surprise have apprehended the statements of the official representative of NATO Oana Lungescu about allegedly readiness of alliance for discussion of questions of aviation safety when flying over the Baltic Sea.
