FM of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba: Let's call a spade a spade. Putin demands the U.S., NATO & the EU to accept Russia's sphere of influence over sovereign neighboring states. But the Cold War is over, and so are spheres of influence. Putin's demands are illegitimate and harmful to international peace and security
Stoltenberg: NATO is prepared for "a new armed conflict in Europe" should negotiations fail "I am aware of Russia's history. For centuries they have experienced conflict with neighbours," he told the Financial Times. "[But] Russia has an alternative: to co-operate, to work with Nato"
NATO Secretary General @jensstoltenberg to @FT: - "NATO has warned Moscow to abandon its belligerent foreign policy and co-operate with the west or face a military alliance steeled for conflict"
