“Russia continues to destabilize Eastern Ukraine with military and financial support to the separatists. It is not helps reduce stress or restore predictability in our relations”, – said the NATO Secretary General.

He also noted that the Ministers will discuss “recent military activities of Russia along our borders.”

“Near our borders, Russia continues certain military behavior including massive amount of sudden exercise. Russia has placed nuclear-capable missile system “Iskander” in Kaliningrad and terminated the contract for the disposal of weapons-grade plutonium from the United States,” he said.

The Ministers also will speak about how to “take forward the decisions which we adopted at the summit in Warsaw – both to increase deterrence and defense, and by designing stability beyond our borders”.

“We note the progress in increasing the NATO presence in the East of our Alliance in the Black sea region”, – said Stoltenberg.
