NATO’s Stoltenberg warns Russia of ‘costs’ if it moves on Ukraine

“If Russia uses force against Ukraine that will have costs, that would have consequences,” NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said, ahead of a meeting of the 30-nation military organization’s foreign ministers in Latvia Nov. 30-Dec. 1, where Russia’s activities will be high on the agenda….


“This military buildup is unprovoked and unexplained. It raises tensions and it risks miscalculations,” Stoltenberg said. He conceded that “there is no certainty about the intentions of Russia” but said that “this is a military buildup by a country that has invaded Ukraine before.”
