No state in the West intends to wage a new Cold War. As stated e.g. by NATO heads of state and government at the Warsaw Summit in July 2016, “The Alliance does not seek confrontation and poses no threat to Russia. But we cannot and will not compromise on the principles on which our Alliance and security in Europe and North America rest.” (http://www.nato.int/cps/en/natohq/official_texts_133169.htm?selectedLocale=en).
