"Our possession of information about the schemes nursed by the military of both the US and other Western countries against the Russian Federation is guaranteed," the top diplomat said in response to the question about how Russia meets modern challenges in the sphere of security.

Lavrov stressed that Russia keeps its global military presence to further support its defensive capacity.

"No matter what is happening in the world, our security as a state, the security of our citizens and our sovereignty will be duly protected. President Putin repeatedly stated it, and I assure you that it is based on real material changes that are taking place in our country and our army," TASS cited the minister as saying.
