NATO: Russia Reprimanded, Open Doors for Ukraine

Time 9.19 p.m. CEST

NATO State General Anders Fogh Rasmussen will meet tomorrow with Ukraine’s acting Prime minister Arseniy Yatshenyk and will stress the message of international community of support to the people of Ukraine as “they shape their future.”

“We will step up our engagement with civilian and military leadership in Ukraine. We will strengthen our efforts to build the capacity of the Ukrainian military, including with more mutual training and exercises,” says Rasmussen.

After Wednesday, NATO-Russia common meeting, NATO decided to “suspend the first NATO-Russia joint mission, no staff-level civilian or military meeting with Russia will take place.”

In remarks of NATO Secretary General, moreover “entire NATO-Russia cooperation is under review and the decision on this NATO will undertake in early April.” All this sends the message Russia’s actions have consequences. NATO will keep the door open for meetings of Ambassadors in the NATO-Russia Councils. Nevertheless, Russia will not be involved in the escort of the USA vessel of the U.S. ship Cape Ray, that needs to neutralize Syria’s chemical weapons

All this should not affect the destructions of chemical weapons in Syria. The USA State Secretary John Kerry, Russian Minister Sergey Lavrov and the chemical weapons teams on both countries concluded talks in Geneva with the framework for elimination of Syrian Chemical Weapons facilities in September 2013.
