Russia: foreign bases deployed on borders are a threat

The head of Russia's Foreign Intelligence Service said that &to=http://english.pravda.ru/politics/2002/01/09/25129.html' target=_blank>foreign military forces deployed at bases along Russia's periphery are a threat to the nation, a news agency reported Monday.

In comments that appeared to be directed at U.S. forces deployed on bases in former Soviet countries, the Interfax news agency quoted Sergei Lebedev as saying that Russia no longer had a "main adversary" as during the Cold War.

But "Russians cannot help but be concerned about new military bases and military contingents being deployed around our country," he was quoted as saying.
