“We are watching Russia that is breaking the system that is based on rules. This system was the basis of the European security for many years. Russia is doing that in violation of international law, disrespecting its international obligations “, – he said in an interview with Deifi.

Stoltenberg also once again accused Russia of destabilizing the situation in Ukraine. “We see the equipment being transported from Russia to the separatist-controlled parts of Ukraine, we see the movement of tanks, trucks, military forces, artillery and advanced missile defense systems,” – he said. – “We appeal to Russia to withdraw its forces from Ukraine, to stop heating up the conflict by assisting separatists, and to respect the Minsk Agreement,” – said the Secretary General.

Earlier, Stoltenberg said that Russia is sending troops and weapons to Ukraine. “In recent days we have seen that Russia is once again funneling weapons, equipment, artillery, tanks and rockets across the border with Ukraine,” – he said.

According to him, “President Putin has obviously violated the peace agreement and violated the integrity of Ukraine.”
