Putin: Russia concerned about NATO buildup near borders

Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Wednesday that Moscow is "concerned" about the NATO military buildup near the country's borders.

Speaking at the 9th Moscow Conference on International Security, Putin stressed that NATO's refusal "to constructively consider" Russia-initiated efforts to "de-escalate tensions and reduce the risk of unpredictable incidents" is another reason for concern.

Russia hopes that "common sense" and willingness "to develop constructive relations with us will eventually prevail," he concluded.
