NATO is preparing measures to help Ukraine defend itself in its stand-off with Russia, and must adapt to the fact that Moscow now views it as an adversary, Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said in an interview published on Sunday. . . .
“We must adapt to the fact that Russia now considers us its adversary,” Rasmussen told El Pais newspaper.
He said NATO was preparing an aid package to present to its members’ foreign ministers at the end of this month that would include help for Ukraine to reform its defence sector and modernise its armed forces. . . .
However, any assistance from NATO itself was likely to be advice rather than equipment.
