NATO chief Jens Stoltenberg says that the Russian escalation continues but at the same time emphasizes that it is not too late for the Russians to change course.
“We again ask Russia to do what they say – and withdraw the troops from the border with Ukraine. It is not too late for Moscow to change course,” Stoltenberg said at the security conference in Munich on Saturday, the newspaper VG writes.
Stoltenberg says that there are no signs that the Russians have withdrawn – on the contrary, the military build-up has increased.
The Russians’ desire to weaken NATO will only strengthen the alliance, the NATO chief pointed out.
EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen is also present at the security conference. She accuses Russia of making an “undisguised attempt to rewrite the rules of international law and order.”
