NATO Secretary General: Russia is trying to destabilize our democracy

Russia has repeatedly engaged in actions designed to destabilize democratic countries of the West, stated  NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg in Brussels on March 19, as reported by Radio Liberty.

Against the background of the continuation of such a policy, he confirmed support for London and solidarity of NATO allies.

“The North Atlantic Alliance is taking serious steps to strengthen its defense structures in the face of the Russian threat. This is in response to Russia’s irresponsible actions in Crimea and eastern Ukraine,” Stoltenberg said.

London, he said, has the most advanced means for working with chemical materials, but, according to the head of NATO, the Allies will provide all necessary assistance to British specialists if necessary.

Earlier, NATO supported Britain’s position with regard to Russia. Prior to this, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg commented on the statements of Russian President Vladimir Putin about a new nuclear weapon, saying that NATO does not want a new cold war.
