Russia stated on Friday it wanted a legally binding guarantee that Nato will give up any military activity in Eastern Europe and Ukraine, part of a wish list of security guarantees it intends to negotiate with the West. For the first time, it laid out demands that it says are essential for lowering tensions in Europe and defusing a crisis over Ukraine.
