‘Russia’s actions are too aggressive towards its neighbours – Ukraine and Georgia”, NATO Deputy Secretary General for Defense and Police, Patrick Turner, said at a meeting of the Bucharest Nine (B9) Foreign Ministers in Tallinn on October 27.

Turner noted that while NATO’s position on Russia’s actions towards Ukraine and Georgia remains unchanged, this position does not aim to provoke Russia, but is rather ‘an adequate description of reality’.
