NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg on Tuesday (30 November 2021) called on Moscow to be transparent, de-escalate and reduce tensions, following Russia's military build-up near Ukraine.

''Any future Russian aggression against Ukraine would come at a high price and have serious political and economic consequences for Russia,'' Mr Stoltenberg said, following the first day of a meeting of NATO Foreign Ministers in Riga. The Secretary General said ministers also addressed Belarus' hybrid campaign against Allies, as well as NATO’s leading role in arms control.
