You can notice that Russia didn't place army with borders of Germany or France. Who in that case is driving force? Let's look at the events on the other hand: military exercises "West-2017" – not a reason for NATO to place troops directly with the Russian border" — he has told in an interview of the German broadcasting company Deutsche Welle, responding to a remark of the correspondent that expansion of NATO can be perceived as reaction to "aggressive policy of Russia". The exercises "West-2017" will pass on September 14-20 in the territory of Belarus. According to the Russian Defense Ministry, about 12,7 thousand servicemen will take part in them (from them 5,5 thousand — Russian).

Russia at a meeting of the NATO-Russia Council (NRC) has held on July 13 for alliance member countries a briefing about the forthcoming doctrines. Russia declares unprecedented activity of NATO at the western borders in recent years. NATO at the same time expands initiatives and calls it "control of the Russian aggression". Moscow expressed concern about accumulation of forces of alliance in Europe more than once. The Russian President's Press Secretary Dmitry Peskov has said earlier that Russia for anybody doesn't pose a threat, however won't disregard the action potentially dangerous to her interests.
