The current security situation in eastern Ukraine remains the main reason for controversies between NATO and Russia. Jens Stoltenberg, NATO Secretary General said this at a briefing, which followed the Russia-NATO Council session in Brussels.

‘The conflict (in Donbas, - 112 International) still deeply influences security and stability of the European-Atlantic region; it also remains the key reason of the current state of relations between the Alliance and Russia. Improving the security conditions in eastern Ukraine remains the priority on the way to implementation of the Minsk agreement. However, the security situation is fragile now, as ceasefire violations continue; heavy weaponry is still located in the close proximity to the engagement line,’ Stoltenberg said.  

He reiterated that OSCE observers still have trouble accessing certain areas on the division line in Donbas and the Ukraine-Russia state border.
