The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation stated that Russia is ready for an armed military conflict with NATO.

This was made by Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov in an interview with a propaganda publication.

"We are ready, as it has already been demonstrated, to protect our national interests by all means at our disposal," he said, answering the question whether we can expect an armed conflict between the Russian Federation and the bloc in the future.

Moreover, he believes that Russia will defeat NATO member states.

"People who continue to test our strength must have come to believe that there are no limits to their own 'gambling', the game of raising the stakes. But they may be among the losers," the Russian diplomat added.

Earlier, a veteran of the Russian-Ukrainian war, Major of the Reserve of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Oleksiy Hetman suggested that Putin was probably preparing an attack on a NATO country.
