Anders Fogh Rasmussen, NATO’s top civilian official, says that Russia’s occupation and annexation of the Crimean Peninsula has led the alliance to suspend programs for practical cooperation with Moscow.
This is “a critical moment for our security. When we face old threats and new, from Eastern Europe to North Africa and the Middle East. So we need to continue to adapt our readiness, and reinvest in our capabilities and partnerships. And I regret to say that we see no signs that Russia is respecting its international commitments. So today we will review our relations with Russia and decide what to do next.
