NATO ruler says Russian violence against Ukraine may be expensive
(MENAFN) The chief of the NATO military alliance called for Russia to not make any army acts against Ukraine, stating that the cost might be expensive.
NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg updated journalists before a conference of NATO foreign ministers in Latvia's capital Riga "Any future Russian aggression against Ukraine would come at a high price. And have serious political and economic consequences for Russia."
The conference that will last for 2 days, is planned to talk over some matters, as well as the Russian army buildup close to the Ukrainian frontier.
Stoltenberg informed media beside Egils Levits, leader of the Baltic state of Latvia "We are also monitoring the situation at the border of Ukraine with concern. This is the second time this year that Russia has amassed large and unusual concentration of forces in this region.”
“We see heavy weapons, artillery, armored units, drones and electronic warfare systems and tens of thousands of combat-ready troops.”
