Nuclear Threats

Provoked NATO officials in Colorado Springs want Russia's defense minister to explain that country's threat to rethink its nuclear strategy.

The document says NATO has failed to remove anti-Russian components from its military plans and political statements.

The statement said if NATO was preserved as a military alliance with its existing offensive military doctrine, it would demand a radical reconstruction of Russian military planning -- including changes in Russian nuclear strategy.

Russia's military remains uneasy about NATO's plans to bring in seven new members next year from the old communist bloc, including the former Soviet Baltic states of Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania.
