Putin Expresses Openness to Security Talks with NATO and Pledges Enhanced Military Capabilities

During a briefing with graduates from military and law enforcement academies in Moscow, Russian President Vladimir Putin signaled his openness to engage in security discussions with NATO-member countries. In his address, Putin reiterated Russia’s commitment to fostering a broad international dialogue on security issues, involving not just NATO but also organizations such as the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation, the CIS, the Eurasian Economic Community, BRICS, and other international entities.

“Recently, at the meeting with the leadership of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, I outlined our vision on the work to create equal and indivisible security in Eurasia. We are ready for a broad international discussion of these key vital issues, both with our colleagues in the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation, the CIS, the Eurasian Economic Community, BRICS, and other international associations, European and NATO states, among others, naturally, at the time when they are ready for this,” Putin stated.

In addition to his call for dialogue, Putin committed to strengthening Russia’s nuclear capabilities and equipping its military with advanced weaponry. “We will prioritize increasing the supply to the troops on the front line of various types of unmanned aircraft systems, armored vehicles, high-precision weapons, strike aircraft, enemy detection, counter-battery systems, control and communications systems,” he declared.

Following Putin’s remarks, Russian Defence Minister Andrei Belousov lauded the country’s military personnel, noting their dedication to defending national interests and combating adversaries. “Russian military personnel honourably fulfil their military duty, effectively defend national interests, and resolutely fight the followers of Nazi ideology,” Belousov asserted, echoing the commitment to military excellence and national security.
