NATO wants to reduce negotiations with Russia only to Ukraine

NATO is skeptical about Russia’s readiness for real negotiations to de-escalate the situation in the Ukrainian issue, writes The New York Times, commenting on the results of the meeting on Friday of the foreign ministers of the alliance countries.

“NATO foreign ministers met on Friday to prepare a response to Russia’s continuing military buildup near Ukraine amid general skepticism about Moscow’s readiness for de-escalation and serious negotiations,” the article said.

It notes that NATO officials “are not overly optimistic about de-escalation through diplomatic means, and believe that Russia may simply want to buy time and be able to tell its citizens that the West was unwilling to talk, and thus find an excuse to go away. ”

The newspaper writes that representatives of the alliance want to focus on Russia’s activities in relation to Ukraine, “and not be distracted by a broader debate about Europe’s security structure.”
