NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said that the European Union must maintain sanctions against Russia because of its aggressive behavior towards Ukraine.

"In my opinion, it is impossible to remove economic sanctions, while Russia does not change its behavior. I believe that there is wide understanding in this matter in the EU." - NATO chief said.
