NATO “will not recognise Russia’s illegal annexation of Crimea,” stated NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, during a meeting of foreign ministers held in Brussels on Tuesday.

“NATO allies do not and will not recognise Russia’s illegal annexation of Crimea. Following Russia’s use of military force near the Sea of Azov, we call on Russia to ensure freedom of navigation and release the Ukrainian sailors and ships it seized without delay,” Stoltenberg stated.

The NATO foreign ministers meetings takes place in Brussels on December 4 and 5 and will address a range of issues including the recent Kerch Strait incident, militancy in the Middle East and North Africa, the INF Treaty and the situation in Afghanistan.

L’opinion de l’OTAN, on s’en tape, ils ne décident pas pour l’ensemble du monde quand même et aujourd’hui, face à la Russie, ils n’ont qu’une chose à faire : se tenir à carreau !

NATO has nothing to say about either. NATO is a mutual defence treaty. Neither the Crimea nor Ukraine were ever member.

Russia’s blocking the straits of Kerch is totally illegal but neither is it NATO’s business.
