From RFE/RL: “Medvedev also tried to press his advantage at the summit by urging the EU to back his plans for a new ‘security architecture’ for Europe. At the press conference, he sharply attacked NATO — which includes as members most EU member states.

‘We have partnership relations, for example, with the North Atlantic bloc. But, despite what seems to be a special form of relations, this form turned out to be weak when these relations were put to the test,’ Medvedev said.

‘And the ongoing attempts now to rebuild ties between Russia and NATO are encountering quite serious difficulties.'”
