NATO supports sanctions against Russia – Stoltenberg

The North Atlantic Alliance supports economic sanctions imposed on Russia to force the Kremlin to stop aggression against Ukraine.

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg stated this in Brussels on Wednesday, an Ukrinform correspondent reported.

"I believe that economic sanctions are important in order to send a clear message about what Russia has committed in Ukraine. There should be consequences for Russia to alter its behavior," the head of the Alliance said.

He recalled NATO's double approach in the context of the policy towards Russia, which provided for combination of strengthening of deterrence and defense while maintaining a political dialogue.
