According to a source with the Russian Foreign Ministry, Moscow is still preparing its response to the American propositions on the proposals, APA reports citing Sputnik.

"A report suggesting that Russia transferred its follow-up to the US, regarding Washington's answer to Moscow's security guarantee proposals, is not true," Deputy Foreign Minister Alexander Grushko stated on Tuesday.

"This report is not true", he told Sputnik.

According to a source from the Foreign Ministry, the answer from Moscow is still being prepared.

"[Foreign Minister] Lavrov sent messages to his NATO counterparts, including [US Secretary of State Anthony] Blinken, on the issue of how NATO understands the fundamental, key principle of the indivisibility of security. And there is no answer to this message from the West, from no one. Therefore, it is wrong to present the case saying that we sent them a written response", the diplomatic source stressed.
