According to Il Mundo, the summit will be held in the IFEMA pavilions in the Spanish capital. Because of the NATO summit, increased security measures were introduced in the city. In particular, according to the newspaper, the Interior Ministry sent an additional 12,000 police officers from other regions of the country to the capital. Together with the capital's police officers (also about 12 thousand people), they will carry out the tasks of protecting the leaders of NATO countries and their delegations, as well as ensuring the security of events.

One of the stated goals of the summit&mdash ; to agree and approve the strategic concept of NATO development for the next ten years, until 2032.

Russia in the new concept of the alliance will appear as the main threat, Bloomberg wrote earlier and said US representative to NATO Julian Smith.

China, according to Bloomberg and the Financial Times, will appear as a “system challenge” for the values, security and interests of the members of the North Atlantic Alliance. In the previous version of the NATO strategy, published in 2010, China was not mentioned at all, and Russia was mentioned as a partner.

The current NATO Strategic Concept was adopted in 2010. It notes the need for a “strategic partnership”; with Russia. The main tasks of the alliance in it are called collective defense, crisis management and security through cooperation. The 2020 NATO report on NATO reform identified Russia as the main military threat to the alliance until at least 2030.

Russia sees NATO expansion as a threat. At the end of 2021, Moscow put forward a demand for NATO to provide legal guarantees for the non-expansion of the alliance to the east, and also sent draft security guarantees to the United States and NATO. Also, Russian officials have repeatedly said that Moscow opposes Ukraine's accession to NATO.

Negotiations on these documents have not yielded concrete results.

On February 24, Russia began special military operation in Ukraine.

At the end of May, Deputy Chairman of the Security Council Dmitry Medvedev, commenting on the words of US President Joe Biden that Washington does not plan to supply Ukraine with weapons capable of delivering strikes on Russian territory, said that in the event If Russian cities are still attacked, Moscow may strike “not at Kyiv”, but at the centers where these “criminal decisions” are made. “Some of them are not in Kyiv at all,” — Medvedev stressed.
