The Secretary General of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, Jens Stoltenberg, states that NATO and Russia have fundamental differences over the situation in the Donbas and the captured 24 Ukrainian sailors captured by Russia. Stoltenberg said this at a press conference following the second meeting of the NATO-Russia Council this year.
“Ukraine remains the first topic of discussion. We discussed the security situation in the east of Ukraine, the lack of progress in the Minsk agreements and tensions in and around the Sea of Azov,” said Stoltenberg. According to him, “NATO again called for the release of Ukrainian sailors and ships seized by Russia in November last year.”
“On these issues, NATO and Russia still have fundamental disagreements,” the Alliance Secretary General said.
Earlier, Stoltenberg has already stated that Russia and NATO completely dispersed in their positions on the Treaty on the Elimination of Medium and Short Range Missiles and Moscow Aggression in the Donbas.
