The incident in Salisbury is, first of all, an example of the picture that we have been seeing for several years: Russia is becoming more and more unpredictable and more and more aggressive.said the secretary general.
According to him, “the situation shows that there are additional threats from Russia, to which the alliance needs to find answers.”
Stoltenberg added that NATO "fears Russia's transition from standard to nuclear weapons." In this regard, the member states of the alliance "need to improve their defense capability," he said.
The Secretary General believes that Germany and other NATO member countries "will reconsider their approach towards Russia."
We must be vigilant and decisive,concluded Stoltenberg.
