Statement by the North Atlantic Council on the situation in and around Ukraine,

We are gravely concerned by the substantial, unprovoked, and unjustified Russian military build-up on the borders of Ukraine in recent months, and reject the false Russian claims of Ukrainian and NATO provocations. […]

We are ready for meaningful dialogue with Russia.  We reiterate our long-standing invitation to Russia for a meeting of the NATO-Russia Council in the near future.  We are aware of Russia’s recent European security proposals.  We are clear that any dialogue with Russia would have to proceed on the basis of reciprocity, address NATO’s concerns about Russia’s actions, be based on the core principles and foundational documents of European security, and take place in consultation with NATO’s European Partners.  Should Russia take concrete steps to reduce tensions, we are prepared to work on strengthening confidence-building measures.  The OSCE is also a relevant platform.
