NATO in Russia

Anders Fogh Rasmussen, NATO Secretary General, was in Moscow this week asking Russia to contribute military supplies and support for the NATO mission in Afghanistan. Rasmussen stressed the fact that NATO and Russia both face a security threat from Afghanistan.

However, Rasmussen spent much of his time in Moscow trying to assuage the tension that has marked NATO/Russian relations since the end of the Cold War, in light of NATO expansion into former Soviet–controlled territory, and talks between the alliance, Georgia and Ukraine.

Also, this week marks the 30th Anniversary of the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan.
