NATO’s relations with Russia

NATO’s relations with Russia

On 1 April 2014, NATO Foreign Ministers condemned Russia’s illegal military intervention in Ukraine and Russia’s violation of Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity. NATO does not recognise Russia’s illegal and illegitimate attempt to annex Crimea. NATO continues to call on Russia to return to compliance with international law and its international obligations, to take genuine and effective measures to stop destabilising Ukraine, and to end its support for armed separatist groups, including by stopping the flow of weapons and fighters across its borders. The crisis between Ukraine and Russia will be a key topic on the agenda for NATO Heads of State and Government when they meet in Wales in September.

NATO Secretary General condemns entry of Russian convoy into Ukraine

22 Aug. 2014

I condemn the entry of a Russian so-called humanitarian convoy into Ukrainian territory without the consent of the Ukrainian authorities and without any involvement of the International Committee of the Red Cross. This is a blatant breach of Russia’s international commitments, including those made recently in Berlin and Geneva, and a further violation of Ukraine’s sovereignty by Russia. It can only deepen the crisis in the region, which Russia itself has created and has continued to fuel. The disregard of international humanitarian principles raises further questions about whether the true purpose of the aid convoy is to support civilians or to resupply armed separatists.
