Significant level discussions
Senior NATO and Russian authorities are meeting Wednesday to attempt to connect apparently hostile contrasts over the eventual fate of Ukraine, in the midst of profound wariness that Russian President Vladimir Putin’s security recommendations for facilitating strains are certified.
The gathering comes during seven days of high-stakes tact and a US-drove work to forestall arrangements for what Washington accepts could be a Russian attack on Ukraine.
Moscow denies it is arranging an assault. In any case, its set of experiences of military activity in Ukraine and Georgia stresses NATO.
Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Alexander Grushko and Deputy Defense Minister Alexander Fomin will lead Moscow’s assignment at the NATO-Russia Council, the initial time it’s met in more than two years.
