NATO won't stop poking the Russian bear — and the Russian Foreign Ministry is tired of it. 

"We are being practically pressured to assume a confrontational paradigm of relations based on the logic of a military standoff," the ministry said in a statement commenting on the results of the recent Russia-NATO Council meeting in Brussels on Friday.

According to Moscow, NATO is "obsessed" with massing troops on Russia's borders:

"What kind of 'constructive' relationship can be expected between Russian and NATO when the U.S. and its allies continue to act on old patterns and have been obsessed with building up their military presence on our borders, justifying this with the need to 'contain Russia'?" The ministry said in a statement commenting on the results of the latest Russia-NATO Council meeting at the ambassadorial level in Brussels.

What's this — logic? We can't allow that.
