    The issue of UN peacekeepers inside the Donbas region in Ukraine is a contentious one.

    The Ukraine crisis continues to be the main source of tension in the NATO-Russia relationship according to the alliance’s top official.

    “During the meeting today [with Russian foreign minister Sergei Lavrov] we addressed Ukraine and I underlined the importance of the implementation of the Minsk agreements,” NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg told reporters at the Munich Security Conference on Feb. 17. “I also said that the situation in Ukraine is the main reason for the deterioration of the relationship between NATO and Russia and also the main reason why NATO has adopted its defensive posture in the eastern part of the Alliance.”

But I think it’s important to continue to work on different proposals to make sure that we try to have some progress on the implementation of the Minsk agreements.”
