We remind that Deputy Prime Minister for European Integration Olha Stefanyshyna said during a joint press conference with NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg in Brussels that the discussion of security guarantees should begin with the withdrawal of Russian troops from Ukraine's borders.

Earlier, NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg warned Russia that its attack on Ukraine would come at a high price called for a return to a diplomatic solution to the conflict.

Russia suggested ways for NATO countries to defuse tensions in Europe, which have arisen, among other things, because of Ukraine. The Russian Foreign Ministry urged Washington to join Russia's unilateral moratorium on the deployment of land-based RIACs in Europe and to agree on and introduce the necessary measures to verify compliance with mutual obligations.
