  • An extraordinary meeting of NATO foreign ministers will be held on Friday, and the Russian military escalation around Ukraine’s borders is on the agenda.

  • The meeting is expected to include how the alliance will respond to Russian demands that no more countries be granted entry into the alliance, and about restrictions on the placement of missiles in Russia’s immediate area.

  • NATO countries have already rejected the most far-reaching demands, but the question is whether the alliance is prepared to make concessions regarding more digestible demands – and whether that, together with threats of sanctions, will be enough to deter Russia from invading Ukraine.
