It would appear that the US National Security Adviser, John Bolton, presented to President Putin a draft agreement for the cessation of military manoeuvres on Nato’s eastern flank.

Under this draft, the Atlantic Alliance would stop organizing war drills in Poland and the Baltic States. In return, Russia would abstain from similar actions on the other side of the border, that is, on Russian territory.

The US President, Donald Trump, is scheduled to meet his Russian homologue in Helsinki, the capital of Finland on 16 July 2018. Let’s not forget that during his electoral campaign, President Trump announced his intention to dissolve the Alliance.
