NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg once again called on Russia to release the detained Ukrainian vessels and sailors following the Kerch Strait incident, speaking to journalists ahead of the NATO foreign ministers meetings in Brussels on Tuesday.

“NATO’s foreign ministers will meet and address a wide range of issues of importance for our shared security. We will address Russia’s destabilising behaviour,” he stated.

“NATO provides strong political support and strong practical support to Ukraine,” continued the NATO chief who reiterated his earlier demands for Russia to released seized ships and sailors.

Stoltenberg also touched upon alleged possible violations by Russia of the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) treaty saying, “it is urgent that Russia ensures full compliance in a transparent and verifiable way because the INF treaty is so important for our security.”

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, extremism in the Middle East and North Africa, the INF Treaty and the situation in Afghanistan.
