  • Today, NATO foreign ministers meet in an extra-ordinary meeting to discuss the tense situation between Russia and Ukraine, and next week several high-level meetings will follow, including between NATO and Russia.

  • But according to Ukrainian analyst Volodymyr Fesenko, some major results are not to be expected because Russia and the West have completely different purposes for talks.

  • “Russia wants the West to agree to concessions, for example when it comes to NATO’s activities in the Russian immediate area. The West, on the other hand, sees the talks as a pure necessity to prevent a Russian military operation against Ukraine “, says Fesenko to Ekot.
