ETV Interview: Rasmussen Says Russia is Isolated ({{commentsTotal}})


NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen is in Estonia for a two-day visit, and dropped by the ERR offices Thursday night for an interview with Astrid Kannel on ETV's evening news.

Rasmussen told ERR he sees a Cold War era mentality in Russia's recent actions, but one of the main differences is that the Soviet Union was a leader of the communist world, while Russia is globally isolated due to its actions in Ukraine. Rasmussen said he is also cautious about any statements coming out of Moscow at the present time.

Rasmussen will step down as the head of NATO on October 1, and will be succeeded by former Norwegian Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg.
