Jens Stoltenberg, NATO Secretary-General, has stated that the alliance plans to enhance its presence in the Black Sea, as the organization reported on its website.

“NATO is also concerned by Russia’s pattern of aggressive behaviour. Including its ongoing actions against Ukraine, and the seizure of Ukrainian sailors and ships near the Sea of Azov. NATO has already stepped up its presence in the Black Sea. And we continue to work closely with our partners in the region,” Stoltenberg said.
