Joint Statement of the NATO-Ukraine Commission
As we meet today, Ukraine’s sovereignty, territorial integrity and independence continue to be violated by Russia. Despite Russia’s denials, Russian armed forces are engaged in direct military operations in Ukraine; Russia continues to supply weapons to militants in eastern Ukraine; and it maintains thousands of combat-ready troops on its border with Ukraine. These developments undermine the security of Ukraine and have serious implications for the stability and security of the entire Euro-Atlantic area.
