Moscow_ President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday warned about Russia''s plans to respond to the challenges to its security posed by the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), Prensa Latina reports.

The dignitary explained that his country will give an appropriate response to NATO's actions near our borders to keep the strategic balance, but with much less expenditures and without affecting the effectiveness of those measures.

Putin said that the very presence of the antimissile systems near the Russian borders poses a threat, in addition to the possibility that those launching pads might be turned into offensive weapons in a matter of hours.

The Russian president noted that the disintegration of the Soviet Union was one of the great tragedies of the 20th century. Only the fact that 25 million Russians became foreigners overnight justifies that argument, he pointed out.
